Prove that for any self-adjoint bounded linear operator T on a Hilbert space H that

(Tf,f)

is real-valued for all f in H.

##### Solution Summary

It is proven that for a self adjoint linear operator T, (Tf,f) is real for all f in the Hilbert space H, where (f,f) denotes the inner product on H.
The solution is detailed and well presented.
