# Program.gate¶

Program.gate(name, params, qubits)[source]

Add a gate to the program.

Note

The matrix elements along each axis are ordered by bitstring. For two qubits the order is 00, 01, 10, 11, where the the bits are ordered in reverse by the qubit index, i.e., for qubits 0 and 1 the bitstring 01 indicates that qubit 0 is in the state 1. See also the related documentation section in the QVM Overview.

Parameters: name (string) – The name of the gate. params (list) – Parameters to send to the gate. qubits (list) – Qubits that the gate operates on. The Program instance Program
