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

I'm having a massive brain freeze here trying to show that for any element g in the unitary group you can always represent it as s*some diagonal matrix*s^-1. The only requirement for an element to be unitary is that its hermitian conjugate is its inverse correct? Any hints/help would be appreciated!

Cheers
