Linear transformations which preserve hermitian and positive semidefinite operators

John Emanuel de Pillis

Vol. 23 (1967), No. 1, 129–137

Let A and B represent the full algebras of linear operators on the finite-dimensional unitary spaces and 𝒦, respectively. The symbol (A,B) will denote the complex space of all linear maps from A to B. This paper concerns itself with the study of the following two cones in (A,B): (i) the cone 𝒞 of all T ∈ℒ(A,B) which send hermitian operators in A to hermitian operators in B, and (ii) the subcone 𝒞+ (of 𝒞) of all T ∈ℒ(A,B) which send positive semidefinite operators in A to positive semidefinite operators in B.
