cirq.ControlledOperation

Augments existing operations to have one or more control qubits.

Inherits From: Operation

This object is typically created via operation.controlled_by(*qubits).

controls The qubits that control the sub-operation.
sub_operation The operation that will be controlled.
control_values Which control qubit values to apply the sub operation. Either an object that inherits from AbstractControlValues or a sequence of length num_controls where each entry is an integer (or set of integers) corresponding to the qubit value (or set of possible values) where that control is enabled. When all controls are enabled, the sub gate is applied. If unspecified, control values default to 1.

ValueError If the control_values or control_qid_shape does not match the number of qubits, if the control_values are out of bounds, if the qubits overlap, or if the sub_operation is not a unitary or mixture.

classical_controls The classical controls gating this operation.

tags Returns a tuple of the operation's tags.
untagged Returns the underlying operation without any tags.

Methods

controlled_by

View source

Returns a controlled version of this operation. If no control_qubits are specified, returns self.

Args
*control_qubits Qubits to control the operation by. Required.
control_values For which control qubit values to apply the operation. A sequence of the same length as control_qubits where each entry is an integer (or set of integers) corresponding to the qubit value (or set of possible values) where that control is enabled. When all controls are enabled, the operation is applied. If unspecified, control values default to 1.

transform_qubits

View source

Returns the same operation, but with different qubits.

Args
qubit_map A function or a dict mapping each current qubit into a desired new qubit.

Returns
The receiving operation but with qubits transformed by the given function.

Raises
TypeError qubit_map was not a function or dict mapping qubits to qubits.

validate_args

View source

Raises an exception if the qubits don't match this operation's qid shape.

Call this method from a subclass's with_qubits method.

Args
qubits The new qids for the operation.

Raises
ValueError The operation had qids that don't match it's qid shape.

with_classical_controls

View source

Returns a classically controlled version of this operation.

An operation that is classically controlled is executed iff all conditions evaluate to True. Conditions can be either a measurement key or a user-specified cirq.Condition. A measurement key evaluates to True iff any qubit in the corresponding measurement operation evaluated to a non-zero value; cirq.Condition supports more complex, user-defined conditions.

If no conditions are specified, returns self.

The classical control will remove any tags on the existing operation, since tags are fragile, and we always opt to get rid of the tags when the underlying operation is changed.

Args
*conditions A list of measurement keys, strings that can be parsed into measurement keys, or sympy expressions where the free symbols are measurement key strings.

Returns
A ClassicallyControlledOperation wrapping the operation. If no conditions are specified, returns self.

with_probability

View source

Creates a probabalistic channel with this operation.

Args
probability floating point value between 0 and 1, giving the probability this gate is applied.

Returns
cirq.RandomGateChannel that applies self with probability probability and the identity with probability 1-p.

Raises
NotImplementedError if called on an operation that lacks a gate.

with_qubits

View source

Returns the same operation, but applied to different qubits.

Args
*new_qubits The new qubits to apply the operation to. The order must exactly match the order of qubits returned from the operation's qubits property.

with_tags

View source

Creates a new TaggedOperation, with this op and the specified tags.

This method can be used to attach meta-data to specific operations without affecting their functionality. The intended usage is to attach classes intended for this purpose or strings to mark operations for specific usage that will be recognized by consumers. Specific examples include ignoring this operation in optimization passes, hardware-specific functionality, or circuit diagram customizability.

Tags can be a list of any type of object that is useful to identify this operation as long as the type is hashable. If you wish the resulting operation to be eventually serialized into JSON, you should also restrict the operation to be JSON serializable.

Args
*new_tags The tags to wrap this operation in.

without_classical_controls

View source

Removes all classical controls from the operation.

This function removes all classical controls gating the operation. It acts recursively, so that all classical control wrappers are always removed from the current operation.

If there are no classical controls on the operation, it will return self.

Since tags are fragile, this will also remove any tags from the operation, when called on TaggedOperation (unless there are no classical controls on it). If a TaggedOperation is under all the classical control layers, that TaggedOperation will be returned from this function.

Returns
The operation with all classical controls removed.
