# qml.prod¶

prod(*ops, do_queue=True, id=None)[source]

Construct an operator which represents the generalized product of the operators provided.

The generalized product operation represents both the tensor product as well as matrix composition. This can be resolved naturally from the wires that the given operators act on.

Parameters

ops (tuple[Operator]) – The operators we would like to multiply

Keyword Arguments
• do_queue (bool) – determines if the product operator will be queued. Default is True.

• id (str or None) – id for the product operator. Default is None.

Returns

the operator representing the product.

Return type

Prod

Example

>>> prod_op = prod(qml.PauliX(0), qml.PauliZ(0))
>>> prod_op
PauliX(wires=[0]) @ PauliZ(wires=[0])
>>> prod_op.matrix()
array([[ 0, -1],
[ 1,  0]])
