what is mathematical difference/relation between an hermitian operator $\hat A$ and a vector $\vec A$?

Your choice of letter A and symbols around it tells me nothing about the operator and the vector in question. So it sounds to me as "what is the difference/relation between a Hermitian operator and a vector?" Well, you can apply operators to vectors - that's about it. – user31373 Jun 8 '12 at 18:43
I'm having a hard time guessing why you think they are similar enough you have to ask this question. Can you include your thoughts leading up to the question? – rschwieb Jun 8 '12 at 18:57
