Statevector.sample_memory(shots, qargs=None)

Sample a list of qubit measurement outcomes in the computational basis.

  • shots (int) – number of samples to generate.

  • qargs (None or list) – subsystems to sample measurements for, if None sample measurement of all subsystems (Default: None).


list of sampled counts if the order sampled.

Return type


Additional Information:

This function samples measurement outcomes using the measure probabilities() for the current state and qargs. It does not actually implement the measurement so the current state is not modified.

The seed for random number generator used for sampling can be set to a fixed value by using the stats seed() method.
