# MatrixExponential¶

class MatrixExponential[source]

Bases: qiskit.synthesis.evolution.evolution_synthesis.EvolutionSynthesis

Exact operator evolution via matrix exponentiation and unitary synthesis.

This class synthesis the exponential of operators by calculating their exponentially-sized matrix representation and using exact matrix exponentiation followed by unitary synthesis to obtain a circuit. This process is not scalable and serves as comparison or benchmark for small systems.

Methods

 synthesize Synthesize an qiskit.circuit.library.PauliEvolutionGate.
