Suppose I want to implement run several circuits one after another, but they are constructed in a similar fashion. I could reinstantiate a
QuantumCircuit for each iteration, like this:
params = np.linspace(0, 2 * np.pi, num=20) for p in params: circ = QuantumCircuit(q, c) do_stuff(circ, p) do_other_stuff()
but I'm afraid that creating a bunch of unnecessary
circ objects takes too much memory or too many calls to the garbage collector.
Instead, I would like to remove the gates from the
QuantumCircuit object and build the new circuit in the old object. Is it possible, and if so, is it reasonable?
