Conjugate transpose of matrices

Cont’d from “Dirac Notation: Introduction”, see “/tagged/matrices/

The transpose (denoted by a superscript ”T”) of a matrix 𝕄 with i rows and j columns, defined generally to be

is found by letting ijji (i.e. swapping the rows and columns) to get

This is often visualised by considering a ‘flip’ along the matrix’s trace (i.e. the diagonal elements where i = j), shown by the following animation from Wikipedia.

Furthermore, the complex conjugate of this matrix is found by finding the complex conjugate of each of its elements individually. We denote the new matrix—the cojugate transpose—using a superscript “dagger”, †. Thus

where the complex conjugate of a complex number z = a + bi is found by letting i → − i to get z* = abi.

*The next time that Matrix comes to the Forrests', Willie is the only one there. The house is completely quiet, except for the whimper of his little brother. He doesn't look at Matrix, but he can feel her presence.* Come in, if you wish to. Nathan is upstairs with my mother.

I-. *She senses the stale house and she slowly walks herself in taking very cautious steps. Her eyes are very wide.*

Okay off topic question for admin bUT HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEW JOKER OH MY LORD I I I HAVE NO WORDS

Hey kiddo!

And nah you cool–I enjoy chatting off topic!^^

You mean Jared Leto’s? Yeah..I was like

haha I mean, I’m not as freaked/surprised as some people obvs. I don’t expect the movies to do the stories/characters much justice because it’s become a money-making machine rather than being true to it, for the most part. And granted, the photo was more commemorative of the anniversary, and therefore may not be the set character design (as far as I’ve read). 

But anyway, I like the skin tone and the tattoos that said “hahahaha” but I can’t see him doing that to his teeth or other such details…Joker may be a wild card and go shirtless from time to time but he likes his unique outfits. But it’s just my opinion. I feel like he looks like a punk rocker or crazed computer hacker from the Matrix or something. In trying to convey his insanity they went a bit overboard.

More so, I really don’t like the idea of the media trying to persuade fans into liking it, stating it’s soooo revolutionary and encompasses all previous incarnations of Joker, because in my view I can’t see it. Not yet anyway. 

I may end up liking what they do with this new Joker…but I’m missing the calculated insanity he used to have, if that makes any sense. :’) 

Regardless, we shall wait and see what transpires with this new Joker..^^


Sometimes I think that I have to be living in like a matrix world type situation. Like the level of ignorance and discrimination in this world is legitimately so mind boggling it just can’t be real

In 72 years, the Sun apparently moves 1 degree upon the Zodiacal elliptic, from one constellation to another,which corresponds to the 72 names of ‘Holy God’ in the holy Bible. The ‘Fibonocci Principle’ is represented by the sequence of mathematical numbers 1,1,2,3,5… which controls form manifestation (#Matrix ) in the dense world mimcking the Infinite (#PI ) Ratio. The number #26 represents the totality of cube. The cube has 6 sides, 8 corners, and 12 boundary lines totaling to 26 (6+8+12=26). The Solar Sun, which is represented by the number 6 is the Objective #Heart / #Mind of Solar Logos, known by the ancient Egyptians as the invisible spirit of ancient God #Horus riding between the wings of the flaming ‘#Phoenix Bird’, also known by #Hindu’s as Vishnu or Surya Narayna riding between the wings of Garuda, who is the supreme representation of the Solar Consciousness (#Spirit ) which also indwells in the human beings. The middle pillar of #Kabalistic Tree of life, mathematically represents number 26. The Gematria of the of Holy Tetragrammaton name “#YHVH ” is 26. There are 26 alphabets or differential tones of the celestial #sound AUM, which manifest creation. There are 26 alphabets in #English language. #Osiris was cut into 26 pieces. The stretched wings of Phoenix Bird represents the #magnetic energies of various planets while the vertical #electric energies of the Solar Sun rides its wings, making a Celestial Cross. The Right Eye (white #light practices) of Horus was considered as #Sun and the Left Eye (dark left hand practices) as #Moon , representing the white and black #magic . #cosmos #universe #supreme #truth #4biddenknowledge @theglobalmovement

what i am wearing: Psychedelic blue knee-length long-sleeve dress, and that’s pretty much it. I’m five seconds of laziness away from getting changed for bed.

one place that makes you happy: My Aunty Joyce’s garden. It’s laden with flowers both wild and not, in the middle of a bunch of farmland, and there are fruit trees that get weighed down until their branches sweep the floor in good autumns and it’s just a happy place all around.

last book you read: Technically speaking, The Hairy Dieters Eat For Life because I was looking for dinner ideas and even if it’s a diet-oriented cookbook it’s actually got damn nice food in it. The last “proper” book though would be Good Omens for the zillionth time <3.
