QPE(operator=None, state_in=None, iqft=None, num_time_slices=1, num_ancillae=1, expansion_mode='trotter', expansion_order=1, shallow_circuit_concat=False, quantum_instance=None)¶
The Quantum Phase Estimation algorithm.
QPE (also sometimes abbreviated as PEA, for Phase Estimation Algorithm), has two quantum registers, control and target, where the control consists of several qubits initially put in uniform superposition, and the target a set of qubits prepared in an eigenstate (often a guess of the eigenstate) of the unitary operator of a quantum system. QPE then evolves the target under the control using dynamics on the unitary operator. The information of the corresponding eigenvalue is then ‚kicked-back‘ into the phases of the control register, which can then be deconvoluted by an Inverse Quantum Fourier Transform (IQFT), and measured for read-out in binary decimal format. QPE also requires a reasonably good estimate of the eigen wave function to start the process. For example, when estimating molecular ground energies in chemistry, the Hartree-Fock method could be used to provide such trial eigen wave functions.
None]) – The Hamiltonian Operator
None]) – An optional InitialState component representing an initial quantum state.
Nonemay be supplied.
QuantumCircuit]) – A Inverse Quantum Fourier Transform component
int) – The number of time slices, has a minimum value of 1.
int) – The number of ancillary qubits to use for the measurement, has a min. value of 1.
str) – The expansion mode (‚trotter‘|‘suzuki‘)
int) – The suzuki expansion order, has a min. value of 1.
bool) – Set True to use shallow (cheap) mode for circuit concatenation of evolution slices. By default this is False. See
