Part of the Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics book series (UTM)
Let V be a finite dimensional vector space over the real or complex numbers, with a positive definite scalar product. Let
be a linear map. We shall study three important special cases of such maps, named in the title of this chapter. Such maps are also represented by matrices bearing the same names when a basis of V has been chosen.
