Programming a quantum state simulator using Python and Qiskit

Started Aug. 21, 2023

Abstract or project description

Quantum computers exploit the properties of quantum mechanical systems to process information exponentially faster than classical computers. States of quantum computers are represented by high-dimensional matrices and can be simulated (with exponential overhead) by classical computers. I am coding a Python-based quantum circuit simulator that will keep track of the quantum state of a model quantum computer by performing the matrix calculations associated with applying quantum gates to the qubits. The program will effectively track the math behind the scenes at each stage of an implemented algorithm. Once this simulator is completed, it can be used to implement a variety of interesting quantum protocols.
