qml.init.random_layers_uniform

random_layers_uniform(n_layers, n_wires, n_rots=None, low=0, high=6.283185307179586, seed=None)[source]

Creates a parameter array for RandomLayers(), drawn from a uniform distribution.

The shape of the parameter array is (n_layers, n_rots) and each parameter is drawn uniformly at random from between low and high. The parameters define the rotation angles of the randomly positioned rotations applied in each layer.

Parameters
  • n_layers (int) – number of layers

  • n_wires (int) – number of qubits

Keyword Arguments
  • n_rots (int) – number of rotations, if None, n_rots=n_wires

  • low (float) – minimum value of non-angle gate parameters

  • high (float) – maximum value of non-angle gate parameters

  • seed (int) – seed used in sampling the parameters, makes function call deterministic

Returns
