cirq.StabilizerState

Interface for quantum stabilizer state representations.

This interface is used for CliffordTableau and StabilizerChForm quantum state representations, allowing simulators to act on them abstractly.

Methods

apply_cx

View source

Apply a CX operation to the state.

Args
control_axis The control axis of the operation.
target_axis The axis to which the operation should be applied.
exponent The exponent of the CX operation, must be an integer.
global_shift The global phase shift of the raw operation, prior to exponentiation. Typically the value in gate.global_shift.

Raises
ValueError If the exponent is not an integer.

apply_cz

View source

Apply a CZ operation to the state.

Args
control_axis The control axis of the operation.
target_axis The axis to which the operation should be applied.
exponent The exponent of the CZ operation, must be an integer.
global_shift The global phase shift of the raw operation, prior to exponentiation. Typically the value in gate.global_shift.

Raises
ValueError If the exponent is not an integer.

apply_global_phase

View source
