### How do I use 'aux_operators' in 'TrotterQRTE' time evolution problem?

I'm trying to evolve a 3 qubit system under a Pauli Sum Hamiltonian in QISKIT using the TrotterQRTE method, and observe the projection of on the singlet state at every time step. How do I program the ...

### How to Trotterize a CNOT gate?

I came across a paper that said that they Trotterized a CNOT gate into 4 blocks of CU gates where the CU gate parameters are specified. This was all done on Qiskit. How does this Trotterization ...

### How to implement Hamiltonian $0.01Z$?

I have a task in an assignment that wants me to apply a Hamiltonian to a state. The Hamiltonial is 0.01*sigma_z. I know how to apply a Z gate to a state but I don't know to process the factor 0.01 in ...

### Investigating the scaling of the error of a Trotter-Suzuki-approximation

I am doing an assignment and I am being asked to investigate the scaling of the error with the number of repetions $n$ of a approximation of the Hadamard with $R_x$ and $R_y$. This is the ...

### Confirming locality of a Hamiltonian through decomposition

I was trying to understand Trotterization. The given Hamiltonian is decomposed into a sum of $k$-local Hamiltonians which can be exponentiated in $O(1)$ gate complexity. After which the Trotter ...

### Trotter error for bosons in various encodings

Mapping second-quantized bosonic modes onto qubits can be done using various encodings. Each of those have their pro et contra. Fewer qubits — more gates, and vice versa. Encoding an $N$-level bosonic ...
I was trying to implement Trotterization for a $k$-local Hamiltonian simulation using qiskit. For this, say I want to apply $e^{\lambda \sigma^1_z \otimes \sigma^2_z \otimes \sigma^3_z}$ (this being ...
