SabreLayout

class SabreLayout(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: qiskit.transpiler.basepasses.AnalysisPass

Choose a Layout via iterative bidirectional routing of the input circuit.

Starting with a random initial Layout, the algorithm does a full routing of the circuit (via the routing_pass method) to end up with a final_layout. This final_layout is then used as the initial_layout for routing the reverse circuit. The algorithm iterates a number of times until it finds an initial_layout that reduces full routing cost.

This method exploits the reversibility of quantum circuits, and tries to include global circuit information in the choice of initial_layout.

SabreLayout initializer.

Parameters
  • coupling_map (Coupling) – directed graph representing a coupling map.

  • routing_pass (BasePass) – the routing pass to use while iterating. This is mutually exclusive with the swap_trials argument and if both are set an error will be raised.

  • seed (int) – seed for setting a random first trial layout.

  • max_iterations (int) – number of forward-backward iterations.

  • swap_trials (int) – The number of trials to run of SabreSwap for each iteration. This is equivalent to the trials argument on SabreSwap. If this is not specified (and routing_pass isn’t set) by default the number of physical CPUs on your local system will be used. For reproducibility between environments it is best to set this to an explicit number because the output will potentially depend on the number of trials run. This option is mutually exclusive with the routing_pass argument and an error will be raised if both are used.

Raises

TranspilerError – If both routing_pass and swap_trials are specified

Methods

name

Return the name of the pass.

run

Run the SabreLayout pass on dag.

Attributes

is_analysis_pass

Check if the pass is an analysis pass.

If the pass is an AnalysisPass, that means that the pass can analyze the DAG and write the results of that analysis in the property set. Modifications on the DAG are not allowed by this kind of pass.

is_transformation_pass

Check if the pass is a transformation pass.

If the pass is a TransformationPass, that means that the pass can manipulate the DAG, but cannot modify the property set (but it can be read).
