GitHub(opens in a new tab)

Bases: EvolutionSynthesis

Product formula base class for the decomposition of non-commuting operator exponentials.

LieTrotter and SuzukiTrotter inherit from this class.

Parameters


Attributes

settings

Return the settings in a dictionary, which can be used to reconstruct the object.

Returns

A dictionary containing the settings of this product formula.

Raises

NotImplementedError(opens in a new tab) – If a custom atomic evolution is set, which cannot be serialized.


Methods

synthesize

abstract synthesize(evolution)

Synthesize an qiskit.circuit.library.PauliEvolutionGate.

Parameters

evolution (PauliEvolutionGate) – The evolution gate to synthesize.

Returns

A circuit implementing the evolution.

Return type
