### Counterexample of $\text{Null}(T)^{\bot} = \text{Im}(T^{*})$

I know that $\text{Null}(T)^{\bot} = \text{Im}(T^{*})$, where $T^{*}$ means the adjoint operator of a linear operator $T$, holds when the domain of $T$ is finite-dimensional. However, the proof uses ...

### Is it true that if $A=BA^{*}A$ then $A^{*}=B^{*}AA^{*}$

I wonder is it true that for any $n \times n$ matrices $A$, and $B$.// If $A=BA^{*}A$ is true, does it imply that $A^{*}=B^{*}AA^{*}$?// I used mathematica to check the condition in 3 by 3 case, and ...

### Spectral norm of a Hadamard product

Let $F$ be the $n\times n$ DFT matrix, i.e., $F_{i,j} = \exp\left(-\tfrac{2\pi(i-1)(j-1)}{n}\imath\right)$, for $1\le i,j\le n$ and $\imath =\sqrt{-1}$. Futhermore, let $\Vert \cdot\Vert$ and $\circ$ ...

### Fast argument to see that the dual map of a projection is a projection

If $X$ is a Banach space and $U,V$ are closed subspaces, such that $X \cong U \oplus V$, then a continuous linear map $P:X \rightarrow X$ is called a projection if $P|_U =id$ and ker(P)=V. Now we ...

### Unitary transformation between complete and orthonormal bases

I'm using the Dirac notation for vectors here, since this is a quantum mechanics question. Suppose the complete orthonormal bases $\{|\psi_n\rangle\}$ and $\{|\psi{'}_n\rangle\}$ are related by the ...

### polar decomposition proof

Let $H$ be a hilbert space and $T$ a bounded linear operator on $H$. I'm trying to prove that there is a partial isometry $V$ on the closure of $Im(|T|)$ such that $T=V|T|$ and $|T|=V^*T$, where ...

### uniqueness of positive operator

Let $A,B$ be commuting positive operators on a hilbert space such that $\langle(A-B)(A+B)x,x\rangle=0$ for all $x$ in the hilbert space. Prove that $A=B$. My attempt: The above implies that $A=B$ on ...

### $\langle Tx,x \rangle=0$ proof

If $T$ is a bounded operator on a hilbert space $H$ and $\langle Tx,x \rangle=0$ for all $x$ in $H$, then $T=0$. I'm considering what we can conclude if $\langle Tx,x \rangle=0$ for all $x$ in some ...

### Rank of sum of projections

Let $(\varphi_j)$ be a linear independent sequence of elements of a Hilbert space, not necessarily orthogonal, but such that $$Kf := \sum_{j=1}^\infty \langle\varphi_j, f\rangle\varphi_j$$ converges ...

### Spectral decomposition of normal operator

Define $T$ from $L_{2}(R)$ into itself by $T(f)(t)=f(t+1)$. Show that $T$ is normal and finds its spectral decomposition. I've shown that $f$ is normal (in fact it's unitary) but how do I find its ...

### Find the adjoint operator of $T_p$

Let $V=\mathscr{M}_n(C)$ with an inner product $\langle A,B\rangle=\mathrm{Tr}\,(AB^{*})$, $P$ be a fixed invertible matrix in $V$, and $T_P$ be the linear operator on $V$ defined by ...
Let $\alpha,\beta$ be linear operators on a finite dimensional vector space $V$ over field $F$. Let $\gamma=\alpha\circ\beta$ and $\delta=\beta\circ\alpha$. Prove that: (1). $m_\delta(x)$ divides ...
### Prove that if $T$ a normal linear transformation and invertible, then $T^{-1}$ is normal.
The question is: Prove that if $T$ a normal linear transformation and invertible, then $T^{-1}$ is normal. Then I have to find the spectral decomposition of $T^{-1}$. At first I tried to prove it by ...
