Let (V, C) be a finite-dimensional complex inner product
space.
We recall that a map T : V → V is said to be normal if
T∗ ◦ T = T ◦ T∗ .
1. Show that if T is normal, then |T∗(v)| = |T(v)|
for all vectors v ∈ V.
2. Let T be normal. Show that if v is an eigenvector of T
relative to the eigenvalue λ, then it is also an eigenvector of
T∗ relative to...

(c) (2 points) Recall that the norm of a vector x ∈ V...

Let V be a vector space: d) Suppose that V is
finite-dimensional, and let S be a set of inner products on V that
is (when viewed as a subset of B(V)) linearly independent. Prove

Let V be a finite-dimensional vector space over C and T in L(V)
be an invertible operator in V. Suppose also that T=SR is the polar
decomposition of T where S is the correspondIng isometry and
R=(T*T)^1/2 is the unique positive square root of T*T. Prove that R

Say (V,<,>) is a finite dimensional real inner product
space. Then the composition of two self adjoint operators is again
self adjoint. Prove or Disprove.
