I'm given some arbitrary operator call it O, how do I represent it in general matrix form while it still preserves the properties of the operator.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ex. if operator is hermitian how to i represent a most general matrix representation so it preserves properties of a hermitian matrix.
