## Homework Statement

Using Dirac notation (bra, kets), define the meaning of the term "Hermitian".

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

From what I understand, a hermitian operator is simply one that has the same effect as its hermitian adjoint. So, I'm assuming it should simply be,

[itex]

<\psi|\hat{Q}|\psi>=<\psi|\hat{Q}^*|\psi>

[/itex]

I've seen it written in more complicating ways, so I'm guessing there's a little more to it. Please help.
