This is an example of the qiskit.circuit.library.QFT implementation of the Quantum Fourier transform function which is documented at: docs.quantum.ibm.com/api/qiskit/0.44/qiskit.circuit.library.QFT

So this also serves as a more interesting example of quantum compilation, mapping the QFT gate to Qiskit Aer primitives.
If we don't transpile in this example, then running blows up with:
qiskit_aer.aererror.AerError: 'unknown instruction: QFT'
The second input is:
and the output of that approximately:
[0, 1j/sqrt(2), 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1j/sqrt(2)]
which can be defined simply as the normalized DFT of the input quantum state vector.
