Comparison Between FLOPS and CLOPS

I'm now trying to design a quantum circuit via qiskit or pennylane. Here, to show my model's superiority, I'm now finding computational cost metrics (FLOPS in the classical algorithm). In my knowledge,...

Compute the number of circuit layers in an UCC type ansatz using Qiskit

I am trying to compute the number of circuit layers in a UCC ansatz in Qiskit in order to estimate the circuit running time using CLOPS estimates on IBM quantum devices. Here is what I tried to do: <...

What are the prospects for improving CLOPS on superconducting computers during the next several years?

According to this paper, the speed of a quantum processor can be measured in Circuit Layer Operations Per Second (CLOPS). Circuit layers are defined in the context of Quantum Volume (QV) benchmarks, ...
