openfermion.transforms.chemist_ordered

Puts a two-body fermion operator in chemist ordering.

The normal ordering convention for chemists is different. Rather than ordering the two-body term as physicists do, as \(a^\dagger a^\dagger a a\) the chemist ordering of the two-body term is \(a^\dagger a a^\dagger a\)

fermion_operator (FermionOperator): a fermion operator guarenteed to have number conserving one- and two-body fermion terms only.

chemist_ordered_operator (FermionOperator): the input operator ordered in the chemistry convention.

OperatorSpecificationError Operator is not two-body number conserving.
