[docs]def device(name, *args, **kwargs): r"""device(name, wires=1, *args, **kwargs) Load a :class:`~.Device` and return the instance. This function is used to load a particular quantum device, which can then be used to construct QNodes. PennyLane comes with support for the following devices: * :mod:`'default.qubit' <pennylane.devices.default_qubit>`: a simple state simulator of qubit-based quantum circuit architectures. * :mod:`'default.gaussian' <pennylane.devices.default_gaussian>`: a simple simulator of Gaussian states and operations on continuous-variable circuit architectures. * :mod:`'' <pennylane.devices.default_qubit_tf>`: a state simulator of qubit-based quantum circuit architectures written in TensorFlow, which allows automatic differentiation through the simulation. * :mod:`'default.qubit.autograd' <pennylane.devices.default_qubit_autograd>`: a state simulator of qubit-based quantum circuit architectures which allows automatic differentiation through the simulation via python's autograd library. Additional devices are supported through plugins — see the `available plugins <>`_ for more details. All devices must be loaded by specifying their **short-name** as listed above, followed by the **wires** (subsystems) you wish to initialize. The *wires* argument can be an integer, in which case the wires of the device are addressed by consecutive integers: .. code-block:: python dev = qml.device('default.qubit', wires=5) def circuit(): qml.Hadamard(wires=1) qml.Hadamard(wires=[0]) qml.CNOT(wires=[3, 4]) ... The *wires* argument can also be a sequence of unique numbers or strings, specifying custom wire labels that the user employs to address the wires: .. code-block:: python dev = qml.device('default.qubit', wires=['ancilla', 'q11', 'q12', -1, 1]) def circuit(): qml.Hadamard(wires='q11') qml.Hadamard(wires=['ancilla']) qml.CNOT(wires=['q12', -1] ) ... Most devices accept a ``shots`` argument which specifies how many circuit executions are used to estimate stochastic return values. In particular, ``qml.sample()`` measurements will return as many samples as specified in the shots argument. The shots argument can be changed on a per-call basis using the built-in ``shots`` keyword argument. .. code-block:: python dev = qml.device('default.qubit', wires=1, shots=10) @qml.qnode(dev) def circuit(a): qml.RX(a, wires=0) return qml.sample(qml.PauliZ(wires=0)) >>> circuit(0.8) # 10 samples are returned [ 1 1 1 -1 -1 1 1 1 1 1] >>> circuit(0.8, shots=3)) # default is overwritten for this call [1 1 1] >>> circuit(0.8) # back to default of 10 samples [ 1 1 1 -1 -1 1 1 1 1 1] Some devices may accept additional arguments. For instance, ``default.gaussian`` accepts the keyword argument ``hbar``, to set the convention used in the commutation relation :math:`[\x,\p]=i\hbar` (by default set to 2). Please refer to the documentation for the individual devices to see any additional arguments that might be required or supported. Args: name (str): the name of the device to load wires (int): the number of wires (subsystems) to initialise the device with Keyword Args: config (pennylane.Configuration): a PennyLane configuration object that contains global and/or device specific configurations.
