Implementation from arXiv:quant-ph/0003137 and "A New Data Structure for Cumulative Frequency Tables" by Peter M. Fenwick.
Note that this implementation is equivalent to the one described in
arXiv:1208.5986, and is different from the one described in
arXiv:1701.07072. The one described in arXiv:1701.07072 is implemented
in OpenFermion as
n_qubits (int|None): Can force the number of qubits in the resulting operator above the number that appear in the input operator.
||An instance of the QubitOperator class.|
||Invalid number of qubits specified.|
