RX

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

Produces the RX gate:

RX(phi) = [[cos(phi / 2), -1j * sin(phi / 2)],
           [-1j * sin(phi / 2), cos(phi / 2)]]

This gate is a single qubit X-rotation.

Parameters:
  • angle – The angle to rotate around the x-axis on the bloch sphere.
  • qubit – The qubit apply the gate to.
Returns:

A Gate object.
