QuESTlink -- Mathematica embiggened by a hardware-optimised quantum emulator
A new paper introducing the Hub's QuESTlinkMathematica-based quantum computer emulator has been published in the IOP Quantum Science and Technology journal.
Abstract: We introduce QuESTlink,pronounced 'quest link', an open-source Mathematicapackage which efficiently emulates quantum computers. By integratingwith the Quantum Exact Simulation Toolkit (QuEST), QuESTlink offers ahigh-level, expressive and usable interface to a high-performance, hardware-accelerated emulator. Requiring no installation, QuESTlink streamlines the powerful analysis capabilities of Mathematica into the study of quantum systems, even utilising remote multi-core and GPU hardware. We demonstrate the use of QuESTlink to concisely and efficiently simulate several quantum algorithms, and present some comparative benchmarking against core QuEST.
