- class ImaginaryMcLachlanPrinciple(qgt=None, gradient=None)¶
Class for an Imaginary McLachlan’s Variational Principle. It aims to minimize the distance between both sides of the Wick-rotated Schrödinger equation with a quantum state given as a parametrized trial state. The principle leads to a system of linear equations handled by a linear solver. The imaginary variant means that we consider imaginary time dynamics.
AlgorithmError – If the gradient instance does not contain an estimator.
