If a bounded operator is defined by What is its adjoint? I'm assuming the usual inner product on Can anyone give me some help finding this? I'm not too good at manipulating integrals. (Not asking for the definition of adjoint)

I'm not too good at manipulating integrals. (Not asking for the definition of adjoint) Start with the adjoint equation: . The left side is The right side is (changing the order of integration). Compare (1) and (2) to see that . Notice that this is equal to , so that , in other words T is skew-adjoint.
Thanks for that, if it is skew self adjoint is it still normal?
