# Trotter¶

class Trotter(reps=1)[source]

Bases: qiskit.aqua.operators.evolutions.trotterizations.suzuki.Suzuki

Simple Trotter expansion, composing the evolution circuits of each Operator in the sum together reps times and dividing the evolution time of each by reps.

Parameters

reps (int) -- The number of times to repeat the Trotterization circuit.

Methods

 convert Convert a SummedOp into a ComposedOp or CircuitOp representing an approximation of e^-i*op_sum.
