Are there emulators for quantum computers?

Yes, it is possible to simulate quantum computations on a classical computer. But the cost of simulations grows exponentially with qubit count and/or circuit depth and/or particular operation counts. ...

Are there emulators for quantum computers?

Yes, it is possible to simulate a quantum computer on a normal one – But you most likely have to sacrifice efficiency. The dimension of the state space rises exponentially with the number of qubits ($...

Are there emulators for quantum computers?

If you're specifically looking at Q#, then it's super easy to use with an emulator -- in fact, it's not possible to have Q# but not have the emulator, they're bundled together. To get started, first ...

Computing with Logical Qunits

A logical qubit is made out of many physical qubits (or qudits), simply selecting a particular two-dimensional subspace. So you can’t make it “exclusively” out of logical qubits because they sit on ...

How to keep track of entanglements when emulating quantum computation?

It is certainly sufficient to always calculate the full $2^n\times 2^n$ unitary matrix, and then apply it to the $2^n$-entry state vector. If that's what you choose to do, that's all you have to do as ...

Are there emulators for quantum computers?

I think a nice "overview" about the subject can be found at: Quantiki They have a list of quantum computer simulators in several languages, some of the simulators have been cited here before. However,...

Are there emulators for quantum computers?

Yes. If you build it yourself, find a 3rd party computer with the same specs as the BullSequana M9600 series, or come up with €100K+ and buy a system from Atos. Notice the similarity between the ...

Computing with Logical Qunits

Short answer: Logical qubits are just an abstraction above physical qubits. A logical qubit is something (see after for examples) that acts like a qubit. Some examples A logical qubit can be: A ...
