gaussian_deriv(duration, amp, sigma, name=None)[Quellcode]

Generates unnormalized gaussian derivative Waveform.

For $$A=$$ amp and $$\sigma=$$ sigma applies the midpoint sampling strategy to generate a discrete pulse sampled from the continuous function:

$f(x) = A\frac{(x - \mu)}{\sigma^2}\exp\left(\left(\frac{x - \mu}{2\sigma}\right)^2 \right)$

i.e. the derivative of the Gaussian function, with center $$\mu=$$ duration/2.

Parameter
• duration (int) – Duration of pulse. Must be greater than zero.

• amp (complex) – Pulse amplitude of corresponding Gaussian at the pulse center (duration/2).

• sigma (float) – Width (standard deviation) of pulse.

• name (Optional[str]) – Name of pulse.
