I have a question about the formalism of quantum mechanics. For some operator A...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[itex]\langle x |A|\psi\rangle = A\langle x | \psi \rangle[/itex]

Can this be derived by sticking identity operators in or is it more a definition/postulate.

Thanks.
