QuantumVolume¶

class
QuantumVolume
(num_qubits, depth=None, seed=None, classical_permutation=True)[source]¶ Bases:
qiskit.circuit.quantumcircuit.QuantumCircuit
A quantum volume model circuit.
The model circuits are random instances of circuits used to measure the Quantum Volume metric, as introduced in [1].
The model circuits consist of layers of Haar random elements of SU(4) applied between corresponding pairs of qubits in a random bipartition.

calibrations
¶ Return calibration dictionary.
 The custom pulse definition of a given gate is of the form
{‘gate_name’: {(qubits, params): schedule}}

data
¶ Return the circuit data (instructions and context).
 Returns
a listlike object containing the tuples for the circuit’s data.
Each tuple is in the format

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
dict

num_ancillas
¶ Return the number of ancilla qubits.
 Return type
int

num_clbits
¶ Return number of classical bits.
 Return type
int

num_parameters
¶ Convenience function to get the number of parameter objects in the circuit.
 Return type
int

num_qubits
¶ Return number of qubits.
 Return type
int

parameters
¶ Convenience function to get the parameters defined in the parameter table.
