My memory is fading. Can somebody please remind me how I would go about determining in each of the following cases whether the operator A is Hermitian or not?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Case 1.

[tex]A\psi(x) = \psi(x+a)[/tex]

Case 2.

[tex]A\psi(x) = \psi^*(x)[/tex]

where the star indicates complex conjugation.
