XXDecomposer¶

class
XXDecomposer
(euler_basis='U', embodiments=None, backup_optimizer=None)[source]¶ Bases:
object
A class for optimal decomposition of 2qubit unitaries into 2qubit basis gates of XX type (i.e., each locally equivalent to CAN(alpha, 0, 0) for a possibly varying alpha).
 Parameters
euler_basis (
str
) – Basis string provided to OneQubitEulerDecomposer for 1Q synthesis. Defaults to “U”.embodiments (
Optional
[dict
]) – A dictionary mapping interaction strengths alpha to native circuits which embody the gate CAN(alpha, 0, 0). Strengths are taken so that pi/2 represents the class of a full CX.backup_optimizer (
Optional
[Callable
]) – If supplied, defers synthesis to this callable when XXDecomposer has no efficient decomposition of its own. Useful for special cases involving 2 or 3 applications of XX(pi/2), in which case standard synthesis methods provide lower 1Q gate count.

Counts the number of gates that would be emitted during resynthesis.
