Consider i have a parameterized quantum circuit. The output of this quantum state is a complex vector, since i have RZ gates in my circuit. What is the best choice for least square function?
Hi @sassan_moradi, great question!
If I understand your question correctly, what you’re trying to find is the distance between 2 quantum states. Least squares is a good metric when you have real values but in this case it may be better to consider using the trace distance.
Please let me know if this is helpful!
Many thanks. Indeed, very helpful example.
I’m glad you found it helpful!
