ProjectQ - An open source software framework for quantum computing
ProjectQ is an open source effort for quantum computing.
It features a compilation framework capable of targeting various types of hardware, a high-performance quantum computer simulator with emulation capabilities, and various compiler plug-ins. This allows users to
- run quantum programs on the IBM Quantum Experience chip
- simulate quantum programs on classical computers
- emulate quantum programs at a higher level of abstraction (e.g., mimicking the action of large oracles instead of compiling them to low-level gates)
- export quantum programs as circuits (using TikZ)
- get resource estimates
To start using ProjectQ, simply follow the installation instructions in the tutorials. There, you will also find OS-specific hints, a small introduction to the ProjectQ syntax, and a few code examples. More example codes and tutorials can be found in the examples folder here on GitHub.
