Rot equivalent in Qiskit


Is the u gate in qiskit the equivalent of qml.Rot?

Hi @maaty, welcome to the forum!

They are similar but not exactly the same. If you look at the matrix representation of Qiskit’s U gate and the matrix representation for PennyLane’s Rot gate you will see that they are slightly different. The essence of both is the same though.

You might also find the conversation here very interesting.

Please let me know if this answers your question!
