When the conjugate transpose of a complex square matrix is equal to itself, then such matrix is known as hermitian matrix. If B is a complex square matrix and if it satisfies Bθ = B then such matrix is termed as hermitian. Here Bθ represents the conjugate transpose of matrix B.
The conjugate transpose of a matrix ‘B’ is also denoted by.
