RY

pyquil.gates.RY(angle, qubit)[source]

Produces the RY gate:

RY(phi) = [[cos(phi / 2), -sin(phi / 2)],
           [sin(phi / 2), cos(phi / 2)]]

This gate is a single qubit Y-rotation.

Parameters:
  • angle (Union[Expression, MemoryReference, int64, int, float, complex]) – The angle to rotate around the y-axis on the bloch sphere.
  • qubit (Union[Qubit, QubitPlaceholder, int]) – The qubit apply the gate to.
Return type:

Gate

Returns:

A Gate object.
