Pick the standard ordered basis because it's the easiest to work with. Is your inner product the standard inner product (i.e. the dot product)? If so, it should be very easy to find out what the matrix of T looks like. Step 2. determine the matrix of T* from the matrix of T. Step 3. Given a, calculate T*(a) and you are done.
