cirq.is_hermitian

cirq.is_hermitian(matrix: numpy.ndarray, *, rtol: float = 1e-05, atol: float = 1e-08) → bool[source]

Determines if a matrix is approximately Hermitian.

A matrix is Hermitian if it’s square and equal to its adjoint.

Parameters:
  • matrix – The matrix to check.
  • rtol – The per-matrix-entry relative tolerance on equality.
  • atol – The per-matrix-entry absolute tolerance on equality.
Returns:

Whether the matrix is Hermitian within the given tolerance.
