IOperationIdentityN Interface
Cove - A Practical Quantum Computer Programming Framework
IOperationIdentityN Interface
NamespacesCove.BaseIOperationIdentityN
The identity operation for n qubits. The identity operation is essentially a no operation (noop) since it does not change the state of the qubit(s). Direct implementations of this interface should be named OperationIdentityN.

Members

IconMemberDescription
Clone()()()
Return a clone (deep copy) of the current operation. This operation returned can be modified without any impact to this object. Unlike quantum registers, quantum operations cannot be in superposition- hence a clone of them does not violate the no-cloning theorem.

Combine(IQuantumOperation)
Combine two same sized operations into one.
(Inherited from IQuantumOperation.)
GetOperationAndTargets()()()
Get a string that shows the operations name and target. An example might be something like "CNOT: Control = 0, Target = 2".
(Inherited from IQuantumOperation.)
GetSize()()()
Get the size of this operation, the number of qubits it operates on.

GetTargets()()()
Get the target indexes for this operation.

IsValidOperation()()()
Is this a valid quantum operation? All quantum operations must be unitary, so this allows for all operations to be checked before they are applied to registers.
(Inherited from IQuantumOperation.)
NumberOfQubitsOperatesOn()()()
Returns the number of qubits that the operation operates on. For example a CNot operation would return 2 since there are two qubits, target and control.
(Inherited from IQuantumOperation.)
SetSize(Int32)
Set the size of this operation, the number of qubits it operates on.

SetTargets(array<Int32>[]()[])
Set the target indexes for this operation. This also resizes the operation to match the number of indexes passed in.

Tensor(IQuantumOperation)
Tensor two operations into one combined one.
(Inherited from IQuantumOperation.)
ToString()()()
Get the string representation of the object
(Inherited from ICoveObject.)
