# ExactReciprocal¶

class ExactReciprocal(num_state_qubits, scaling, neg_vals=False, name='1/x')[source]

Exact reciprocal

$|x\rangle |0\rangle \mapsto \cos(1/x)|x\rangle|0\rangle + \sin(1/x)|x\rangle |1\rangle$
Parameters
• num_state_qubits (int) – The number of qubits representing the value to invert.

• scaling (float) – Scaling factor $$s$$ of the reciprocal function, i.e. to compute $$s / x$$.

• neg_vals (bool) – Whether $$x$$ might represent negative values. In this case the first qubit is the sign, with $$|1\rangle$$ for negative and $$|0\rangle$$ for positive. For the negative case it is assumed that the remaining string represents $$1 - x$$. This is because $$e^{-2 \pi i x} = e^{2 \pi i (1 - x)}$$ for $$x \in [0,1)$$.

• name (str) – The name of the object.

Note

It is assumed that the binary string $$x$$ represents a number < 1.

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.

Return type

dict

num_ancillas

Return the number of ancilla qubits.
