# cirq.PauliStringPhasorGate

A gate that phases the eigenstates of a Pauli string.

Inherits From: `Gate`

The -1 eigenstates of the Pauli string will have their amplitude multiplied by e^(i pi exponent_neg) while +1 eigenstates of the Pauli string will have their amplitude multiplied by e^(i pi exponent_pos).

`dense_pauli_string` The DensePauliString defining the positive and negative eigenspaces that will be independently phased.
`exponent_neg` How much to phase vectors in the negative eigenspace, in the form of the t in (-1)t = exp(i pi t).
`exponent_pos` How much to phase vectors in the positive eigenspace, in the form of the t in (-1)t = exp(i pi t).

`ValueError` If coefficient is not 1 or -1.

`dense_pauli_string` The underlying DensePauliString.
`exponent_neg` The negative exponent.
`exponent_pos` The positive exponent.
`exponent_relative` The relative exponent between negative and positive exponents.

## Methods

### `controlled`

View source

Returns a controlled version of this gate. If no arguments are specified, defaults to a single qubit control.

Args
`num_controls` Total number of control qubits.
`control_values` Which control computational basis state to apply the sub gate. A sequence of length `num_controls` where each entry is an integer (or set of integers) corresponding to the computational basis state (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.
`control_qid_shape` The qid shape of the controls. A tuple of the expected dimension of each control qid. Defaults to `(2,) * num_controls`. Specify this argument when using qudits.

Returns
A `cirq.Gate` representing `self` controlled by the given control values and qubits. This is a `cirq.ControlledGate` in the base implementation, but subclasses may return a different gate type.

### `equal_up_to_global_phase`

View source

Checks equality of two PauliStringPhasors, up to global phase.

### `num_qubits`

View source

The number of qubits for the gate.

### `on`

View source

Creates a PauliStringPhasor on the qubits.

### `on_each`

View source

Returns a list of operations applying the gate to all targets.

Args
`*targets` The qubits to apply this gate to. For single-qubit gates this can be provided as varargs or a combination of nested iterables. For multi-qubit gates this must be provided as an `Iterable[Sequence[Qid]]`, where each sequence has `num_qubits` qubits.

Returns
Operations applying this gate to the target qubits.

Raises
`ValueError` If targets are not instances of Qid or Iterable[Qid]. If the gate qubit number is incompatible.
`TypeError` If a single target is supplied and it is not iterable.

### `validate_args`

View source

Checks if this gate can be applied to the given qubits.

By default checks that:

• inputs are of type `Qid`
• len(qubits) == num_qubits()
• qubit_i.dimension == qid_shape[i] for all qubits

Child classes can override. The child implementation should call `super().validate_args(qubits)` then do custom checks.

Args
`qubits` The sequence of qubits to potentially apply the gate to.

Raises
`ValueError` The gate can't be applied to the qubits.

### `with_probability`

View source

Creates a probabilistic channel with this gate.

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`.

### `wrap_in_linear_combination`

View source

Returns a LinearCombinationOfGates with this gate.

Args
`coefficient` number coefficient to use in the resulting `cirq.LinearCombinationOfGates` object.

Returns
`cirq.LinearCombinationOfGates` containing self with a coefficient of `coefficient`.
