- class ProbDistribution(data, shots=None)[source]¶
A generic dict-like class for probability distributions.
Builds a probability distribution object.
data (dict) --
Input probability data. Where the keys represent a measured classical value and the value is a float for the probability of that result. The keys can be one of several formats:
A hexadecimal string of the form
A bit string e.g.
shots (int) -- Number of shots the distribution was derived from.
TypeError -- If the input keys are not a string or int
ValueError -- If the string format of the keys is incorrect
Build a probabilities dictionary with binary string keys
Create a new dictionary with keys from iterable and values set to value.
Return the value for key if key is in the dictionary, else default.
Build a probabilities dictionary with hexadecimal string keys
If key is not found, d is returned if given, otherwise KeyError is raised
Remove and return a (key, value) pair as a 2-tuple.
Insert key with a value of default if key is not in the dictionary.
If E is present and has a .keys() method, then does: for k in E: D[k] = E[k] If E is present and lacks a .keys() method, then does: for k, v in E: D[k] = v In either case, this is followed by: for k in F: D[k] = F[k]
