# The convergence of the adjoint operator

If a sequence of operator $A_n$ converges in norm to $A$, i.e. $\lim \lVert A_n-A\rVert=0$)where $A_n$ and $A\in B(H)$ ($H$ is the Hilbert space). Is it true that $A_n^*$ converges in norm to $A^*$?

So you mean norm convergence? –  JSchlather Dec 9 '12 at 20:25
Yes I mean norm convergence –  89085731 Dec 9 '12 at 20:25
Actually, an operator has the same norm as the norm of its adjoint. –  Davide Giraudo Dec 9 '12 at 20:34
@DavideGiraudo Get it. –  89085731 Dec 9 '12 at 20:41

Since $(A_n-A)^*=A_n^*-A^*$ and an operator has the same norm with the adjoint operator,so $||A_n-A||=||A_n^*-A^*||$,then we get the answer.
