IntegerComparator¶
- class IntegerComparator(num_state_qubits=None, value=None, geq=True, name='cmp')[source]¶
Bases:
qiskit.circuit.library.blueprintcircuit.BlueprintCircuit
Integer Comparator.
Operator compares basis states \(|i\rangle_n\) against a classically given integer \(L\) of fixed value and flips a target qubit if \(i \geq L\) (or \(<\) depending on the parameter
geq
):\[|i\rangle_n |0\rangle \mapsto |i\rangle_n |i \geq L\rangle\]This operation is based on two’s complement implementation of binary subtraction but only uses carry bits and no actual result bits. If the most significant carry bit (the results bit) is 1, the \(\geq\) condition is
True
otherwise it isFalse
.Create a new fixed value comparator circuit.
- Parameters
num_state_qubits (
Optional
[int
]) – Number of state qubits. If this is set it will determine the number of qubits required for the circuit.value (
Optional
[int
]) – The fixed value to compare with.geq (
bool
) – If True, evaluate a>=
condition, else<
.name (
str
) – Name of the circuit.

- header = 'OPENQASM 2.0;'¶
- instances = 9¶
- 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.- Return type
