PauliOp¶
- class PauliOp(primitive, coeff=1.0)[source]¶
Bases:
qiskit.opflow.primitive_ops.primitive_op.PrimitiveOp
Class for Operators backed by Terra’s
Pauli
module.- Parameters
primitive (
Pauli
) – The Pauli which defines the behavior of the underlying function.coeff (
Union
[complex
,ParameterExpression
]) – A coefficient multiplying the primitive.
- Raises
TypeError – invalid parameters.
