**unitary operator**is a bounded linear**operator**U : H → H on a Hilbert space H that satisfies U*U = UU* = I, where U* is the adjoint of U, and I : H → H is the identity**operator**. The weaker condition U*U = I defines an isometry. The other condition, UU* = I, defines a coisometry.Jun 6, 2020 · The most important unitary operators are those mapping a

**Hilbert space onto**itself. Such an operator is unitary if and only if $ ( x, y) = ( Ux, Uy) $ for all $ x, y \in X $. Other characterizations of a unitary operator $ U: H \rightarrow ^ {\textrm { onto } } H $ are: 1) $ U ^ {*} U = UU ^ {*} = I $, i.e. $ U ^ {-} 1 = U ^ {*} $; and 2) the ...be real and hence an operator corresponds to a physical observable must be Hermitian. For example, momentum operator and Hamiltonian are Hermitian. An operator is

Next, we will consider two special types of**operators,**namely Hermitian and**unitary operators.**Ucan be written as U= eiH, where eindicates the matrix exponential, iis the imaginary unit, and His a Hermitian matrix. For any nonnegative integern, the set of all n × nunitary matrices with matrix multiplication forms a group, called the
