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

Can someone help me understand why the Inner Product of a Null vector with itself can be non zero if complex numbers are involved?

And why using the complex conjugate resolved this?

I may have understood this wrong. It could be that an Inner Product of any non-Null vector with itself can be zero if complex numbers are involved. Either way does someone have an example?
