AND¶
- class AND(num_variable_qubits, flags=None, mcx_mode='noancilla')[source]¶
Bases:
QuantumCircuit
A circuit implementing the logical AND operation on a number of qubits.
For the AND operation the state \(|1\rangle\) is interpreted as
True
. The result qubit is flipped, if the state of all variable qubits isTrue
. In this format, the AND operation equals a multi-controlled X gate, which is controlled on all variable qubits. Using a list of flags however, qubits can be skipped or negated. Practically, the flags allow to skip controls or to apply pre- and post-X gates to the negated qubits.The AND gate without special flags equals the multi-controlled-X gate:
Using flags we can negate qubits or skip them. For instance, if we have 5 qubits and want to return
True
if the first qubit isFalse
and the last two areTrue
we use the flags[-1, 0, 0, 1, 1]
.Create a new logical AND circuit.
- Parameters
num_variable_qubits (int) – The qubits of which the OR is computed. The result will be written into an additional result qubit.
flags (list[int] | None) – A list of +1/0/-1 marking negations or omissions of qubits.
mcx_mode (str) – The mode to be used to implement the multi-controlled X gate.
Attributes
- ancillas¶
Returns a list of ancilla bits in the order that the registers were added.
- calibrations¶
Return calibration dictionary.
The custom pulse definition of a given gate is of the form
{'gate_name': {(qubits, params): schedule}}
- clbits¶
Returns a list of classical bits in the order that the registers were added.
- data¶
Return the circuit data (instructions and context).
- Returns
a list-like object containing the
CircuitInstruction
s for each instruction.- Return type
QuantumCircuitData
- extension_lib = 'include "qelib1.inc";'¶
- global_phase¶
Return the global phase of the circuit in radians.
- header = 'OPENQASM 2.0;'¶
- instances = 124¶
- layout¶
Return any associated layout information anout the circuit
This attribute contains an optional
TranspileLayout
object. This is typically set on the output fromtranspile()
orPassManager.run()
to retain information about the permutations caused on the input circuit by transpilation.There are two types of permutations caused by the
transpile()
function, an initial layout which permutes the qubits based on the selected physical qubits on theTarget
, and a final layout which is an output permutation caused bySwapGate
s inserted during routing.
- metadata¶
The user provided metadata associated with the circuit.
The metadata for the circuit is a user provided
dict
of metadata for the circuit. It will not be used to influence the execution or operation of the circuit, but it is expected to be passed between all transforms of the circuit (ie transpilation) and that providers will associate any circuit metadata with the results it returns from execution of that circuit.
- num_ancillas¶
Return the number of ancilla qubits.
- num_clbits¶
Return number of classical bits.
- num_parameters¶
The number of parameter objects in the circuit.
- num_qubits¶
Return number of qubits.
- op_start_times¶
Return a list of operation start times.
This attribute is enabled once one of scheduling analysis passes runs on the quantum circuit.
- Returns
List of integers representing instruction start times. The index corresponds to the index of instruction in
QuantumCircuit.data
.- Raises
AttributeError – When circuit is not scheduled.
- parameters¶
The parameters defined in the circuit.
This attribute returns the
Parameter
objects in the circuit sorted alphabetically. Note that parameters instantiated with aParameterVector
are still sorted numerically.Examples
The snippet below shows that insertion order of parameters does not matter.
>>> from qiskit.circuit import QuantumCircuit, Parameter >>> a, b, elephant = Parameter("a"), Parameter("b"), Parameter("elephant") >>> circuit = QuantumCircuit(1) >>> circuit.rx(b, 0) >>> circuit.rz(elephant, 0) >>> circuit.ry(a, 0) >>> circuit.parameters # sorted alphabetically! ParameterView([Parameter(a), Parameter(b), Parameter(elephant)])
Bear in mind that alphabetical sorting might be unituitive when it comes to numbers. The literal “10” comes before “2” in strict alphabetical sorting.
>>> from qiskit.circuit import QuantumCircuit, Parameter >>> angles = [Parameter("angle_1"), Parameter("angle_2"), Parameter("angle_10")] >>> circuit = QuantumCircuit(1) >>> circuit.u(*angles, 0) >>> circuit.draw() ┌─────────────────────────────┐ q: ┤ U(angle_1,angle_2,angle_10) ├ └─────────────────────────────┘ >>> circuit.parameters ParameterView([Parameter(angle_1), Parameter(angle_10), Parameter(angle_2)])
To respect numerical sorting, a
ParameterVector
can be used.>>> from qiskit.circuit import QuantumCircuit, Parameter, ParameterVector >>> x = ParameterVector("x", 12) >>> circuit = QuantumCircuit(1) >>> for x_i in x: ... circuit.rx(x_i, 0) >>> circuit.parameters ParameterView([ ParameterVectorElement(x[0]), ParameterVectorElement(x[1]), ParameterVectorElement(x[2]), ParameterVectorElement(x[3]), ..., ParameterVectorElement(x[11]) ])
- Returns
The sorted
Parameter
objects in the circuit.

- qubits¶
Returns a list of quantum bits in the order that the registers were added.
