How does knowing that two matrices anticommute AB=-BA and that A^2=1 and B^2=1 help me to know how to find the trace of the matrices. I am supposed to show that their traces equal eachother which equals 0 but I am not sure exactly how the given information helps me determine the trace?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
