### Showing that if $A$ is closed, then $A^\ast A$ is self-adjoint

Let $A$ be a closed linear operator on a Hilbert space $H$. Then I want to show that $B = A^\ast A$ is self-adjoint. Now, $B$ is positive, i.e. $\langle f, B f \rangle \geq 0 \forall f \in D(B)$. ...

### Adjoint operator of $L^\infty$

Lets denote with $(\Omega,\Sigma,\mu)$ a $\sigma$-finite measurble space with a linear, continuous operator $$T : L^\infty \to L^\infty.$$ Does this always imply the existence of a linear, continuous ...

### adjoint method for computing derivatives

I am curious if anyone has heard of this problem before: Suppose that $u(x,p)$ is a function of $x$ and $p$. These arguments need not be scalars. Let $u(x,p)$ satisfy some differential equation, say:...

### The adjoint of a linear isometry on normed space is surjective

I come across with the following question: Let $X$ and $Y$ be normed spaces over the same field and $T:X \rightarrow Y$ be a linear isometry, with $\|Tx\|=\|x\| \, \forall x \in X$, then the adjoint ...

### Properties of adjoint matrix in a finite dimensional inner product space

let $V$ be a finite dimensional inner product space. Let $T$ be a linear operator on $V$. Prove that there exists an invertible linear operator $U$ such that $U^{-1}TT^*U = T^*T$ where $T^*$ is ...
