6. PROBLEMS 49 The scale factors for cylindrical coordinates are hl = 1, h2 = p, and h3 = 1. Similarly, it can be shown that the scale factors for spherical coordinates are hl = 1, ha = r , and h3 = r sin 9 . 1 The pressure at any depth h in a fluid at rest is given by Ph= Po phx where p is the density of the fluid. By use of dimensionless analysis, determine the dimension of the quantity represented by x; what is the name of this physical quantity? 2 Find A B and A - B for A = 2i - j k and B = i - 3j - 5k.

MODERN ALGEBRAIC METHODS IN PHYSICS 64 The Hermitian Conjugate of a Matrix The Hermitian4 conjugate At (also known as the Hermitian operator, AH) of an arbitrary matrix A is obtained by taking the complex conjugate of the matrix (each element) and then the transpose of the complex conjugate matrix. For example, The Hermitian operation reverses the order of matrix multiplication, (AB)t = B ~ A ~ . 3 Special Square Matrices The Identity Matrix A matrix defined by I = bij where I A = A I is called an identity matrix.

Note, however, that the various basic relations in previous sections involving vectors and vector fields remain valid in other orthogonal coordinate systems. Let the position of a point in space be completely described by P ( u l , u2, u3), where ul, u2 and u3 are three singlevalued functions of position. For ui = constant (i = 1,2,3), the ui are three surfaces that intersect at P. These surfaces are called c o o r d i n a t e surfaces, and the three curves of intersection are called coordinate lines.
