BaseEstimatorGradient

class BaseEstimatorGradient(estimator, options=None, derivative_type=DerivativeType.REAL)[source]

Bases: ABC

Base class for an EstimatorGradient to compute the gradients of the expectation value.

Parameters
  • estimator (BaseEstimator) -- The estimator used to compute the gradients.

  • options (Options | None) -- Primitive backend runtime options used for circuit execution. The order of priority is: options in run method > gradient's default options > primitive's default setting. Higher priority setting overrides lower priority setting

  • derivative_type (DerivativeType) --

    The type of derivative. Can be either DerivativeType.REAL DerivativeType.IMAG, or DerivativeType.COMPLEX.

    • DerivativeType.REAL computes \(2 \mathrm{Re}[⟨ψ(ω)|O(θ)|dω ψ(ω)〉]\).

    • DerivativeType.IMAG computes \(2 \mathrm{Im}[⟨ψ(ω)|O(θ)|dω ψ(ω)〉]\).

    • DerivativeType.COMPLEX computes \(2 ⟨ψ(ω)|O(θ)|dω ψ(ω)〉\).

    Defaults to DerivativeType.REAL, as this yields e.g. the commonly-used energy gradient and this type is the only supported type for function-level schemes like finite difference.

Methods

run

Run the job of the estimator gradient on the given circuits.

update_default_options

Update the gradient's default options setting.

Attributes

derivative_type

Return the derivative type (real, imaginary or complex).

Returns

The derivative type.

options

Return the union of estimator options setting and gradient default options, where, if the same field is set in both, the gradient's default options override the primitive's default setting.

Returns

The gradient default + estimator options.
