Dynamic circuits as-late-as-possible (ALAP) scheduling analysis pass.
This is a scheduler designed to work for the unique scheduling constraints of the dynamic circuits backends due to the limitations imposed by hardware. This is expected to evolve over time as the dynamic circuit backends also change.
In its current form this is similar to Qiskit’s ALAP scheduler in which instructions start as late as possible.
The primary differences are that:
Resets and control-flow currently trigger the end of a “quantum block”. The period between the end
of the block and the next is nondeterministic ie., we do not know when the next block will begin (as we could be evaluating a classical function of nondeterministic length) and therefore the next block starts at a relative t=0.
During a measurement it is possible to apply gates in parallel on disjoint qubits.
Measurements and resets on disjoint qubits happen simultaneously and are part of the same block.

InstructionDurations) – Durations of instructions to be used in scheduling.
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.
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).
Runs the pass on circuit.
- circuit (QuantumCircuit) – the dag on which the pass is run.
- property_set (PropertySet or dict or None) – input/output property set. An analysis pass might change the property set in-place.
If on transformation pass, the resulting QuantumCircuit. If analysis
pass, the input circuit.
Return the name of the pass.

- TranspilerError – if the circuit is not mapped on physical qubits.
- TranspilerError – if conditional bit is added to non-supported instruction.
