dq.eye

eye(*dims: int) -> Array

Returns the identity operator.

If only a single dimension is provided, eye returns the identity operator of corresponding dimension. If instead multiples dimensions are provided, eye returns the identity operator of the composite Hilbert space given by the product of all dimensions.

Parameters

  • *dims

    Variable length argument list of the Hilbert space dimensions.

Returns

(array of shape (n, n)) Identity operator (with n the product of dimensions in dims).

Examples

>>> dq.eye(4)
Array([[1.+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, 1.+0.j, 0.+0.j],
       [0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 1.+0.j]], dtype=complex64)
>>> dq.eye(2, 3)
Array([[1.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j, 0.+0.j],
