State Types for Simulation#
The type of states that is used in the simulation checker allows to trade off efficiency versus performance.
Classical stimuli (i.e., random computational basis states) already offer extremely high error detection rates in general and are comparatively fast to simulate, which makes them the default.
Local quantum stimuli (i.e., random single-qubit basis states) are a little bit more computationally intensive, but provide even better error detection rates.
Global quantum stimuli (i.e., random stabilizer states) offer the highest available error detection rate, while at the same time incurring the highest computational effort.

- class StateType#
computational_basis : Randomly choose computational basis states. Also referred to as classical.
random_1Q_basis : Randomly choose a single-qubit basis state for each qubit from the six-tuple (|0>, |1>, |+>, |->, |L>, |R>). Also referred to as local_random.
stabilizer : Randomly choose a stabilizer state by creating a random Clifford circuit. Also referred to as global_random.
