GatesExtension PhaseKick Method A Sandcastle Documented Class Library

Performs a phase kick (or phase shift) on the the registers' state. The operation is represented by the unitary matrix:

The controlled version of this operation can be written as an other unitary matrix:

	RegisterRef target,
	params RegisterRef[] controls


Type: Quantum QuantumComputer
The QuantumComputer instance.
Type: System Double
The phase value.
Type: Quantum RegisterRef
The reference to target qubit.
Type:  Quantum RegisterRef 

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type QuantumComputer. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).
