Unformatted text preview: † indicates an adjoint matrix (transpose plus complex conjugation). The proof is simpler than the one above. Because the complex conjugate ( ∗ ) of a product is the product of the complex conjugates, we can immediately write B † A † = ( B T ) ∗ ( A T ) ∗ = ( B T A T ) ∗ . (8) Now use the theorem just proven above to rewrite Eq.(8) further as B † A † = ( B T A T ) ∗ = (( AB ) T ) ∗ = ( AB ) † , (9) which is the desired result. 1...
