    • n circuition Circumlocution.
    • n circuition A name proposed by C. S. Peirce for so much of any self-returning change as brings about the original state of those characters which are not altered by the reversal of a difference, while it does not bring about the return of such characters as are so altered. A half-revolution is a geometrical circuition. See bicircuition.

Ebullient throughout its depths like Smee,
My heart puts forth its tide of love,
And all its circuits close in thee.

But for the world their work was done;
On all the winds their thought has flown
Through all the circuit of the sun.

In the circuit of the sun
Shall the sound thereof go forth.
It shall bid the sad rejoice,
It shall give the dumb a voice,
It shall belt with joy the earth!

From woman back to woman:
So each new victim treads unfalteringly
The never altered circuit of his fate,
Bringing twelve peers as witness
Both to his starry rise and starry fall.

Our faith full-centred on it. It was known
Thus of the elders who foreran us here,
Mapped out its circuit in the shifting sphere,
And found it, 'mid mutation, fixed alone."
"The Old Pole Star" by Edith Wharton

His long and fervid circuit o'er the burning earth has run;
I joy to watch his parting light loom upward to the eye,
And view the pencil-touch shade off, and then in softness die.
"My Piazza." by Caroline Howard Gilman

Additivity and Distinguishability of Random Unitary Channels
Given these circuit implementations of the three channels D , N , M , the random unitary circuit C that approximates a given circuit Q is constructed in exactly the same was as in Equation (9).
Additivity and Distinguishability of Random Unitary Channels
This circuit C is given by a random unitary circuit, since it is the composition of smaller random unitary circuits.
Additivity and Distinguishability of Random Unitary Channels
The basic idea is to reduce an instance of the quantum circuit distinguishability problem to one with random unitary circuits that has the same distinguishability properties.
Additivity and Distinguishability of Random Unitary Channels
Here we consider this distinguishability problem with the added restriction that the input circuits are random unitary circuits in the model defined in Section VI.
