Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am a CS student trying to learn the basics of quantum physics. Sadly I cant even get pass the definition of Dirac notation because I do not know the meanings of some basic notations

The only thing I know is that V (superscript T) means transpose. Switch between column and row.

However, I keep seeing notations such as

V (superscript *)

V (superscript +) ==> [look more like a cross]

Can someone tell me that those mean? or maybe tell me what to read to learn about these basic notations?
