Abstract:
The theoretical study of quantum computation has yielded
efficient algorithms for some traditionally hard problems.
Correspondingly, experimental work on the underlying phys-
ical implementation technology has progressed steadily.
However, almost no work has yet been done which explores
the architecture design space of large scale quantum com-
puting systems. In this paper, we present a set of tools that
enable the quantitative evaluation of architectures for quan-
tum computers.
The infrastructure we created comprises a complete com-
pilation and simulation system for computers containing
thousands of quantum bits. We begin by compiling complete
algorithms into a quantum instruction set. This ISA enables
