Opis:
A simple proof is provided to show that any bounded normal operator on a real Hilbert space is orthogonally equivalent to its transpose(adjoint). A structure theorem for real skew-symmetric operators is also proved using elementary methods. The later theorem helps to prove a generalization of Williamson's normal form for bounded positive operators on infinite dimensional separable Hilbert spaces. This has applications in the study of infinite mode Gaussian states.
