### Can arbitrary matrices be decomposed using the Pauli basis? [duplicate]

Is it possible to decompose a hermitian and unitrary matrix $A$ into the sum of the Pauli matrix Kronecker products? For example, I have a matrix 16x16 and want it to be decomposed into something ...

### Quantum circuit to implement matrix exponential

I want to build a circuit which will implement $e^{iAt}$, where $A= \begin{pmatrix} 1.5 & 0.5\\ 0.5 & 1.5\\ \end{pmatrix}$ and $t= \pi/2$. We see that $A$ can be written as, $A=1.5I+0.5X$. ...

### Representation of rotation operators $e^{-i\theta(I-Z_1\otimes Z_2 \otimes Z_3)}$ about arbitrary axis for $3$ qubits

I was wondering in how to interpret and represent the operator $e^{-i\theta(I-Z_1\otimes Z_2 \otimes Z_3)}$ for a 3 qubit system in a circuit using qiskit. I was thinking I could just perform an ...
