Note that this does not modify the passed in state.

state_vector The multi-qubit state vector to be sampled. This is an array of 2 to the power of the number of qubit complex numbers, and so state must be of size 2**integer. The state_vector can be a vector of size 2**integer or a tensor of shape (2, 2, ..., 2).
indices Which qubits are measured. The state_vector is assumed to be supplied in big endian order. That is the xth index of v, when expressed as a bitstring, has its largest values in the 0th index.
qid_shape The qid shape of the state_vector. Specify this argument when using qudits.
repetitions The number of times to sample.
seed A seed for the pseudorandom number generator.

Measurement results with True corresponding to the |1⟩ state. The outer list is for repetitions, and the inner corresponds to measurements ordered by the supplied qubits. These lists are wrapped as a numpy ndarray.

ValueError repetitions is less than one or size of state_vector is not a power of 2.
IndexError An index from indices is out of range, given the number of qubits corresponding to the state.
