Bases: qiskit.circuit.gate.Gate

XX+YY interaction gate.

A 2-qubit parameterized XX+YY interaction, also known as an XY gate. Its action is to induce a coherent rotation by some angle between 01|01\rangle and 10|10\rangle.

Matrix Representation:

RXX+YY(θ,β) q0,q1=RZ0(β)exp(iθ2XX+YY2)RZ0(β)=(10000cos(θ2)isin(θ2)eiβ00isin(θ2)eiβcos(θ2)00001)\providecommand{\th}{\frac{\theta}{2}}\\\begin{split}R_{XX+YY}(\theta, \beta)\ q_0, q_1 = RZ_0(-\beta) \cdot \exp\left(-i \frac{\theta}{2} \frac{XX+YY}{2}\right) \cdot RZ_0(\beta) = \begin{pmatrix} 1 & 0 & 0 & 0 \\ 0 & \cos\left(\th\right) & -i\sin\left(\th\right)e^{-i\beta} & 0 \\ 0 & -i\sin\left(\th\right)e^{i\beta} & \cos\left(\th\right) & 0 \\ 0 & 0 & 0 & 1 \end{pmatrix}\end{split}
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_0. Instead, if we apply it on (q_1, q_0), the phase is added on q_1. If betabeta is set to its default value of 00, the gate is equivalent in big and little endian.
