# LinearFunction¶

class LinearFunction(linear, validate_input=False)[source]

Bases: Gate

A linear reversible circuit on n qubits.

Internally, a linear function acting on n qubits is represented as a n x n matrix of 0s and 1s in numpy array format.

A linear function can be synthesized into CX and SWAP gates using the Patel–Markov–Hayes algorithm, as implemented in cnot_synth() based on reference [1].

For efficiency, the internal n x n matrix is stored in the format expected by cnot_synth, which is the big-endian (and not the little-endian) bit-ordering convention.

Example: the circuit

q_0: ──■──
┌─┴─┐
q_1: ┤ X ├
└───┘
q_2: ─────


is represented by a 3x3 linear matrix

$\begin{split}\begin{pmatrix} 1 & 0 & 0 \\ 1 & 1 & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 1 \end{pmatrix}\end{split}$

প্যারামিটার
• linear (list[list] or ndarray[bool] or QuantumCircuit) -- either an n x n matrix, describing the linear function, or a quantum circuit composed of linear gates only (currently supported gates are CX and SWAP).

• validate_input (bool | None) -- if True, performs more expensive input validation checks, such as checking that a given n x n matrix is invertible.

রেইজেস

CircuitError -- if the input is invalid: either a matrix is non {square, invertible}, or a quantum circuit contains non-linear gates.

Methods Defined Here

 is_permutation Returns whether this linear function is a permutation, that is whether every row and every column of the n x n matrix has exactly one 1. permutation_pattern This method first checks if a linear function is a permutation and raises a qiskit.circuit.exceptions.CircuitError if not. synthesize Synthesizes the linear function into a quantum circuit. validate_parameter Parameter validation
