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

I am new to this:

Taking the first Pauli Matrix:

σ1=[0 1

1 0]

Doing the transpose it becomes:

[0 1

1 0]

So is it a unitary matrix?

Similarly

σ2= [0 -i

i 0]

Doing a transpose

=[0 i

[-i 0]

Does it mean the complex conjugates are the same?
