Quantum computing with ITensor and PastaQ

07/27/2022, 7:00 PM7:30 PM UTC

We introduce PastaQ.jl, a computational toolbox for simulating, designing, and benchmarking quantum hardware. PastaQ relies on a tensor network description of quantum processes, built on top of ITensors.jl, a leading library for efficient tensor network algorithms. Leveraging recent developments in tensor network differentiation in ITensor, PastaQ provides access to a broad range of computational tools to tackle a tasks routinely encountered when building quantum computers.
