RYYGate

class RYYGate(theta)[source]

A parameteric 2-qubit \(Y \otimes Y\) interaction (rotation about YY).

This gate is symmetric, and is maximally entangling at \(\theta = \pi/2\).

Circuit Symbol:

     ┌─────────┐
q_0: ┤1        ├
     │  Ryy(ϴ) │
q_1: ┤0        ├
     └─────────┘

Matrix Representation:

\[ \begin{align}\begin{aligned}\newcommand{\th}{\frac{\theta}{2}}\\\begin{split}R_{YY}(\theta) = exp(-i \th Y{\otimes}Y) = \begin{pmatrix} \cos(\th) & 0 & 0 & i\sin(\th) \\ 0 & \cos(\th) & -i\sin(\th) & 0 \\ 0 & -i\sin(\th) & \cos(\th) & 0 \\ i\sin(\th) & 0 & 0 & \cos(\th) \end{pmatrix}\end{split}\end{aligned}\end{align} \]

Examples:

\[R_{YY}(\theta = 0) = I\]
\[R_{YY}(\theta = \pi) = i Y \otimes Y\]
\[\begin{split}R_{YY}(\theta = \frac{\pi}{2}) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} \begin{pmatrix} 1 & 0 & 0 & i \\ 0 & 1 & -i & 0 \\ 0 & -i & 1 & 0 \\ i & 0 & 0 & 1 \end{pmatrix}\end{split}\]
