is there a better way to check for hermicity than doing expecation values? for example, what if you had xp (operators) - px (operators), or pxp (operators again); how can you tell if these combos are hermetian or not, without going through the clumsy integration (that doesn't give a solid result, as far as i can tell)? thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
