Problem in basic equalities for Huckel energy

  1. Feb 16, 2016 #1

    In the proof above I need to understand why: $$S_{ij}=S_{ji}$$. Which is the same as proving

    $$\int f_i f_j dg=\int f_j f_i dg$$ (I)
    Not sure about what I should call the variable for so I called it g. Can someone prove this from the basics? From starting from defintion of complex functions and start from left of (I) and get to the right of (I). I know that complex times complex conjugate gives probability. Thank you!

    In the link this is introduced at page 2 as $$<f_i|f_j>$$
