Bases: qiskit.circuit.gate.Gate

XX-YY interaction gate.

A 2-qubit parameterized XX-YY interaction. Its action is to induce a coherent rotation by some angle between 00|00\rangle and 11|11\rangle.

Note

In Qiskit’s convention, higher qubit indices are more significant (little endian convention). In the above example we apply the gate on (q_0, q_1) which results in adding the (optional) phase defined by betabeta on q_1. Instead, if we apply it on (q_1, q_0), the phase is added on q_0. If betabeta is set to its default value of 00, the gate is equivalent in big and little endian.
