    Two hermitian commutator anticommute: {A,B}=AB+BA=0.Is it possible to have a simultaneous eigenket of A and B?illustrate...
    Thank you in advance

    Sounds like homework?

    Cheers,

    EDIT: Anyway, just assume that |v> is an eigenvector to A and B, then apply the anticommutator to it and draw your conclusions.
