Curl of the product of a scalar and a vector using Levi-Civita

Friday, July 1st, 2011

By Eliezer Estrecho To prove this formula, we use the following: Where: and Using the equation above: We can factor out in the first term to give: Note that for the second term, the permutation of indices are odd, rearranging them to ijk will give the negative: Thus, About the author: Eliezer Estrecho is currently […]

Simultaneous Diagonalization of Hermitian Matrices

Friday, May 8th, 2009

by MARYJANE D. MADULARA In an earlier post about the properties of Hermitian operators, it was noted that quantum operators of physical significance are Hermitian by type. Here we discuss more fully about Hermitian matrices. A n x n matrix is Hermitian if it is equal to its corresponding adjoint matrix. Now, for each Hermitian […]
