TensoredOp¶

class
TensoredOp
(oplist, coeff=1.0, abelian=False)[source]¶ Bases:
qiskit.opflow.list_ops.list_op.ListOp
A class for lazily representing tensor products of Operators. Often Operators cannot be efficiently tensored to one another, but may be manipulated further so that they can be later. This class holds logic to indicate that the Operators in
oplist
are meant to be tensored together, and therefore if they reach a point in which they can be, such as after conversion to QuantumCircuits, they can be reduced by tensor product. Parameters
oplist (
List
[OperatorBase
]) – The Operators being tensored.coeff (
Union
[complex
,ParameterExpression
]) – A coefficient multiplying the operatorabelian (
bool
) – Indicates whether the Operators inoplist
are known to mutually commute.
Methods Defined Here
Evaluate the Operator’s underlying function, either on a binary string or another Operator.
Try collapsing the Operator structure, usually after some type of conversion, e.g.
Return tensor product between self and other, overloaded by
^
.Returns the quantum circuit, representing the tensored operator.

INDENTATION
= ' '¶

abelian
¶ Whether the Operators in
oplist
are known to commute with one another. Return type
bool
 Returns
A bool indicating whether the
oplist
is Abelian.

coeff
¶ The scalar coefficient multiplying the Operator.
 Return type
Union
[complex
