Let V = C n × n with the inner product < X,Y > = tr(X Y t ) and let T be the linear operator on V deﬁned by T ( X ) = • 1 ii 1 ‚ XX • 1 ii 1 ‚ . (a) Show that T is selfadjoint. (b) Find an orthonormal basis of V consisting of eigenvectors of T . Hint: Use the fact that Im(T) ⊥ = Ker(T). (c) Find the matrix A of T with respect to the standard basis of V and ﬁnd a unitary matrix U such that U1 AU is a diagonal matrix....
