Consider the following statement(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Let T (size: nxm) be a complex matrix. Then if A of dimension nxn is positive semidefinite then T*AT >= 0.

Now I was wondering if the converse is true aswel? In my math book they used the converse statement to proof something, but is it possible to say that if T*AT >= 0 (positive semidefinite) then A>= 0?

Note: I used the symbol * to indicate the Hermittian.

Someone got some tips for me?
