Bases : qiskit.aqua.operators.converters.converter_base.ConverterBase

A base for Evolution converters. Evolutions are converters which traverse an Operator tree, replacing any EvolvedOp e with a Schrodinger equation-style evolution CircuitOp equalling or approximating the matrix exponential of -i * the Operator contained inside (e.primitive). The Evolutions are essentially implementations of Hamiltonian Simulation algorithms, including various methods for Trotterization.

Methods

 convert Traverse the operator, replacing any EvolutionOps with their equivalent evolution CircuitOps.
