Homework Statement


Is it true that <UX, UX> can be written (UX)H(UX)?


Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution


I think it is because <UX, UX> is equivalent to the dot product in the real case. The above would work (where H is T) if the situation was real.

It just doesn't actually say this anywhere in my notes or book, so I want to make sure I can use this fact. Thanks!

What is your definition of <x,y>? (If it's an arbitrary inner product, then the statement isn't true. If it's a specific inner product, just use its definition to check if the statement is true).
