[Tex/LaTex] Conjugation of matrices – How to typeset it


Can you help me?

I do not know what to type in order to show the conjugation.

I mean that the matrix B has complex entries and C is the transpose matrix of B, then B* is C with a line above.

How do I do that?

If you are referring to the Conjugate transpose, then the following is what you're after - a standard \overline:

enter image description here

  (\mathbf{A}^*)_{ij} = \conjugatet{\mathbf{A}_{ji}}

Following the guideline in Consistent typography, I've defined \conjugatet to be equivalent to \overline.
