decompose(val: TValue, *, intercepting_decomposer: Callable[cirq.Operation, Union[None, Any, cirq.OP_TREE]] = None, fallback_decomposer: Callable[cirq.Operation, Union[None, Any, cirq.OP_TREE]] = None, keep: Callable[cirq.Operation, bool] = None, on_stuck_raise=<function _value_error_describing_bad_operation>) → List[cirq.Operation]¶
Recursively decomposes a value into
cirq.Operations meeting a criteria.
- val – The value to decompose into operations.
- intercepting_decomposer –
An optional method that is called before the default decomposer (the value’s _decompose_ method). If intercepting_decomposer is specified and returns a result that isn’t NotImplemented or None, that result is used. Otherwise the decomposition falls back to the default decomposer.
Note that val will be passed into intercepting_decomposer, even if val isn’t a cirq.Operation.
- fallback_decomposer – An optional decomposition that used after the intercepting_decomposer and the default decomposer (the value’s _decompose_ method) both fail.
- keep – A predicate that determines if the initial operation or intermediate decomposed operations should be kept or else need to be decomposed further. If keep isn’t specified, it defaults to “value can’t be decomposed anymore”.
- on_stuck_raise – If there is an operation that can’t be decomposed and also can’t be kept, on_stuck_raise is used to determine what error to raise. on_stuck_raise can either directly be an Exception, or a method that takes the problematic operation and returns an Exception. If on_stuck_raise is set to None, undecomposable operations are simply silently kept. on_stuck_raise defaults to a ValueError describing the unwanted undecomposable operation.
A list of operations that the given value was decomposed into. If on_stuck_raise isn’t set to None, all operations in the list will satisfy the predicate specified by keep.
TypeError– val isn’t a cirq.Operation and can’t be decomposed even once. (So it’s not possible to return a list of operations.)
ValueError– Default type of error raised if there’s an undecomposable operation that doesn’t satisfy the given keep predicate.
TError– Custom type of error raised if there’s an undecomposable operation that doesn’t satisfy the given keep predicate.
