# qiskit.quantum_info.Pauli.evolve¶

Pauli.evolve(other, qargs=None)[source]

Heisenberg picture evolution of a Pauli by a Clifford.

This returns the Pauli $$P^\prime = C^\dagger.P.C$$.

Parameters
• other (Pauli or Clifford or QuantumCircuit) – The Clifford operator to evolve by.

• qargs (list) – a list of qubits to apply the Clifford to.

Returns

the Pauli $$C^\dagger.P.C$$.

Return type

Pauli

Raises

QiskitError – if the Clifford number of qubits and qargs don’t match.
