[mg4919] Conjugate
Posted: Oct 7, 1996 1:58 AM

Hi all,

I have the following problem:

matrix1=
1 I I 1 I 1 1 I I 1 1 I
{{-, -, -, -(-)}, {-, -, -(-), -}, {-, -(-), -, -},
2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2

1 I I 1
{-(-), -, -, -}}
2 2 2 2

matrix2=
{{2, 0, b, o}, {0, 3, 0, c}, {Conjugate[b], 0, 2, 0},

{0, Conjugate[c], 0, 3}}

Now,

MatrixForm[Simplify[Inverse[matrix1] . matrix2 . matrix1]]

gives a matrix which contains elements like:

(10 + I b + I c - o - I Conjugate[b] - I Conjugate[c])/4

I think the meaning of this o is 0 (zero), but i don't understand where it
comes from! And especially... How can i get rid of this o?

With kind regards,

Marlies Brinksma
