Tool to calculate adjoint matrix (or Hermitian transpose). The adjoint matrix is the transpose of the conjugate matrix of a matrix M.

Answers to Questions

What is a matrix conjugate transpose? (Definition)

The conjugate transpose matrix is the name given to the transpose of the conjugate of a complex matrix (or of the conjugate of the transposed matrix), it is denoted \( M^* \) or, more rare notation, with a dagger † \( M^\dagger \).

How to calculate the conjugate transpose of a matrix? (Formula)

\( M=[a_{ij}] \) is a matrix with complex elements, the conjugate transpose matrix is computed with the formula $$ M^* = \overline{M}^T = \overline{M^T} = [\overline{a_{ij}}]^T $$

Example: The conjugate transpose 2x2 matrix \( M^* \) of the matrix \( M \) is calculated: $$ M=\begin{pmatrix} 2 & 1-i & 0 \\ 1 & 2+i & -i \end{pmatrix} \Rightarrow M^*= \begin{pmatrix} 2 & 1 \\ 1+i & 2-i \\ 0 & i \end{pmatrix} $$

On dCode, use the character i to represent the imaginary unit \( i \) of complex numbers.

What is the hermitian transpose?

Hermitian transpose is another name of the conjugate transpose matrix, mainly used on linear function spaces. Other names used : Hermitian conjugate, bedaggered matrix or transjugate.
