This module provides backward compatibility with older versions
of the newsynth package. Formerly, it contained an implementation of
the single-qubit Clifford+*T* approximation algorithm of

- Peter Selinger. Efficient Clifford+
*T*approximation of single-qubit operators. http://arxiv.org/abs/1212.6253.

Since the new algorithm in Quantum.Synthesis.GridSynth is better in all cases, we now simply provide a compatible interface to that algorithm.

New software should not use this module, and it may eventually be removed.

newsynth :: RandomGen g => Double -> SymReal -> g -> U2 DOmegaSource

Backward compatible interface to the approximate synthesis algorithm. The parameters are:

- an angle θ, to implement a
*R*_{z}(θ) =*e*^{−iθZ/2}gate; - a precision
*b*≥ 0 in bits, such that ε = 2^{-b}; - a source of randomness
*g*.

Output a unitary operator in the Clifford+*T* group that
approximates *R*_{z}(θ) to within ε in the operator norm. This
operator can then be converted to a list of gates with
`to_gates`

.

Note: the argument *theta* is given as a symbolic real number. It
will automatically be expanded to as many digits as are necessary
for the internal calculation. In this way, the caller can specify,
e.g., an angle of `pi`

/128 `::`

`SymReal`

, without having to worry
about how many digits of π to specify.
