Hey,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have the following question on Hermitian operators

Initially I thought this expectation value would have to be zero as the eigenvectors are mutually orthogonal due to Hermitian Operator and so provided the eigenvectors are distinct then the expectation would be zero... Though I'm not sure if this is correct.

Anyway, any help is appreciated.

Cheers,

Sk
