,"Y"
, or"Z"

, whereasControlledPhaseShift

.- Type
str or None
- batch_size¶
Batch size of the operator if it is used with broadcasted parameters.
The
batch_size
is determined based onndim_params
and the provided parameters for the operator. If (some of) the latter have an additional dimension, and this dimension has the same size for all parameters, its size is the batch size of the operator. If no parameter has an additional dimension, the batch size isNone
.- Returns
Size of the parameter broadcasting dimension if present, else
None
.- Return type
int or None
- control_wires¶
Control wires of the operator.
For operations that are not controlled, this is an empty

object of length0
.- Returns
The control wires of the operation.
- Return type
Wires
- grad_method = None¶
- grad_recipe = None¶
Gradient recipe for the parameter-shift method.
This is a tuple with one nested list per operation parameter. For parameter \(\phi_k\), the nested list contains elements of the form \([c_i, a_i, s_i]\) where \(i\) is the index of the term, resulting in a gradient recipe of
\[\frac{\partial}{\partial\phi_k}f = \sum_{i} c_i f(a_i \phi_k + s_i).\]If
None
, the default gradient recipe containing the two terms \([c_0, a_0, s_0]=[1/2, 1, \pi/2]\) and \([c_1, a_1, s_1]=[-1/2, 1, -\pi/2]\) is assumed for every parameter.- Type

- is_hermitian¶
This property determines if an operator is hermitian.
- name¶
String for the name of the operator.
- ndim_params¶
Number of dimensions per trainable parameter of the operator.
By default, this property returns the numbers of dimensions of the parameters used for the operator creation. If the parameter sizes for an operator subclass are fixed, this property can be overwritten to return the fixed value.
- Returns
Number of dimensions for each trainable parameter.
- Return type
tuple
- num_params = 1¶
- num_wires: Union[int, pennylane.operation.WiresEnum] = 1¶

- parameter_frequencies¶
Returns the frequencies for each operator parameter with respect to an expectation value of the form \(\langle \psi | U(\mathbf{p})^\dagger \hat{O} U(\mathbf{p})|\psi\rangle\).
These frequencies encode the behaviour of the operator \(U(\mathbf{p})\) on the value of the expectation value as the parameters are modified. For more details, please see the
pennylane.fourier
module.- Returns
Tuple of frequencies for each parameter. Note that only non-negative frequency values are returned.
- Return type
list[tuple[int or float]]
Example
>>> op = qml.CRot(0.4, 0.1, 0.3, wires=[0, 1]) >>> op.parameter_frequencies [(0.5, 1), (0.5, 1), (0.5, 1)]
For operators that define a generator, the parameter frequencies are directly related to the eigenvalues of the generator:
>>> op = qml.ControlledPhaseShift(0.1, wires=[0, 1]) >>> op.parameter_frequencies [(1,)] >>> gen = qml.generator(op, format="observable") >>> gen_eigvals = qml.eigvals(gen) >>> qml.gradients.eigvals_to_frequencies(tuple(gen_eigvals)) (1.0,)
