PrimitiveOp

class PrimitiveOp(primitive, coeff=1.0)[Quellcode]

Bases: OperatorBase

A class for representing basic Operators, backed by Operator primitives from Terra. This class (and inheritors) primarily serves to allow the underlying primitives to „flow“ - i.e. interoperability and adherence to the Operator formalism - while the core computational logic mostly remains in the underlying primitives. For example, we would not produce an interface in Terra in which QuantumCircuit1 + QuantumCircuit2 equaled the Operator sum of the circuit unitaries, rather than simply appending the circuits. However, within the Operator flow summing the unitaries is the expected behavior.

Note that all mathematical methods are not in-place, meaning that they return a new object, but the underlying primitives are not copied.

Parameter

Methods Defined Here

add

Return Operator addition of self and other, overloaded by +.

adjoint

Return a new Operator equal to the Operator's adjoint (conjugate transpose), overloaded by ~.

assign_parameters

Binds scalar values to any Terra Parameters in the coefficients or primitives of the Operator, or substitutes one Parameter for another.

compose

Return Operator Composition between self and other (linear algebra-style: A@B(x) = A(B(x))), overloaded by @.

equals

Evaluate Equality between Operators, overloaded by ==.

eval

Evaluate the Operator's underlying function, either on a binary string or another Operator.

exp_i

Return Operator exponentiation, equaling e^(-i * op)

log_i

Return a MatrixOp equivalent to log(H)/-i for this operator H.

mul

Returns the scalar multiplication of the Operator, overloaded by *, including support for Terra's Parameters, which can be bound to values later (via bind_parameters).

permute

Permutes the qubits of the operator.

primitive_strings

Return a set of strings describing the primitives contained in the Operator.

reduce

Try collapsing the Operator structure, usually after some type of conversion, e.g.

tensor

Return tensor product between self and other, overloaded by ^.

tensorpower

Return tensor product with self multiple times, overloaded by ^.

to_circuit

Returns a QuantumCircuit equivalent to this Operator.

to_circuit_op
