pauli_kronecker_product

Graph.pauli_kronecker_product(labels, subsystem_count, *, name=None)

Place Pauli matrices into their two-dimensional subsystems of a system and returns the Kronecker product.

Parameters
  • labels (list[tuple[str, int]]) – A list of tuples, each containing a pair of labels for the Pauli matrix and its position. The Pauli matrix label is a string 'I', 'X', 'Y', 'Z', 'M', or 'P' and the position label is a non-negative integer and smaller than system_count indicating the position of the Paul matrix in the system. At least one tuple must be provided. 'M' creates the lowering matrix \(\sigma_- = \frac{1}{2}(\sigma_x + i\sigma_y)\). 'P' creates the raising matrix \(\sigma_+ = \frac{1}{2}(\sigma_x - i\sigma_y)\). We use the convention \(|\downarrow\rangle = \begin{bmatrix}1\\0\end{bmatrix}\) and \(|\uparrow\rangle = \begin{bmatrix}0\\1\end{bmatrix}\).

  • subsystem_count (int) – The number of two-level subsystems that constitute the system. Must be a positive number.

  • name (str, optional) – The name of the node.

Returns

The Kronecker product of Pauli matrices.

Examples

Place a single Pauli \(X\) matrix in the second of two subsystems to create \(IX\).

>>> graph.pauli_kronecker_product([("X", 1)], subsystem_count=2, name="IX")
<Tensor: name="IX", operation_name="pauli_kronecker_product", shape=(4, 4)>
>>> result = qctrl.functions.calculate_graph(graph=graph, output_node_names=["IX"])
>>> result.output["IX"]["value"]
array([[0.+0.j, 1.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j],
       [1.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j],
       [0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 1.+0.j],
       [0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 1.+0.j, 0.+0.j]])

Place a single Pauli \(X\) matrix in the second of three subsystems to create \(IXI\).

>>> graph.pauli_kronecker_product([("X", 1)], subsystem_count=3, name="IXI")
<Tensor: name="IXI", operation_name="pauli_kronecker_product", shape=(8, 8)>
>>> result = qctrl.functions.calculate_graph(graph=graph, output_node_names=["IXI"])
>>> result.output["IXI"]["value"]
array([[0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 1.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j],
       [0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 1.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j],

       [0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 1.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j]])

Place two Pauli \(X\) matrices in the second and third of three subsystems to create \(IXX\).

>>> graph.pauli_kronecker_product([("X", 1), ("X", 2)], subsystem_count=3, name="IXX")
<Tensor: name="IXX", operation_name="pauli_kronecker_product", shape=(8, 8)>
>>> result = qctrl.functions.calculate_graph(graph=graph, output_node_names=["IXX"])
>>> result.output["IXX"]["value"]
