Though his last paragraph is a bit obsolete, but +1 for the first paragraph. Dec9 awarded Scholar Dec9 accepted Matrices for which $\mathbf{A}^{-1}=-\mathbf{A}$ Dec9 comment Matrices for which $\mathbf{A}^{-1}=-\mathbf{A}$ Ah, ok. Now I understand what you mean by conjugation. And I understand why this keeps the mentioned property but destroys the unitarity property. Thanks again. Dec9 comment Matrices for which $\mathbf{A}^{-1}=-\mathbf{A}$ I just cannot get what conjugation by a unitary matrix means. I guess with conjugation you mean not just the simple complex conjugate of the matrix elements? Sorry, but I'm not that deeply versed in linear algebra, especially if it gets too theoretical. Dec9 comment Matrices for which $\mathbf{A}^{-1}=-\mathbf{A}$ Thanks for your answer, but I have difficulties to understand the last sentence. What do you mean with "by conjugating by a non-unitary matrix". Now I understand that it is invariant under conjugation. But aren't the skew-Hermitian and unitary properties invariant under conjugation, too? I don't know how cojugation helps with constructing a counter-example. Or do you mean something different (I don't really understand what conjugation by a non-unitary matrix means)? Dec8 awarded Student
