Learn Quantum Computing with Python and IBM Quantum Experience

By: Robert Loredo

Overview of this book

IBM Quantum Experience is a platform that enables developers to learn the basics of quantum computing by allowing them to run experiments on a quantum computing simulator and a real quantum computer. This book will explain the basic principles of quantum mechanics, the principles involved in quantum computing, and the implementation of quantum algorithms and experiments on IBM's quantum processors. You will start working with simple programs that illustrate quantum computing principles and slowly work your way up to more complex programs and algorithms that leverage quantum computing. As you build on your knowledge, you’ll understand the functionality of IBM Quantum Experience and the various resources it offers. Furthermore, you’ll not only learn the differences between the various quantum computers but also the various simulators available. Later, you’ll explore the basics of quantum computing, quantum volume, and a few basic algorithms, all while optimally using the resources available on IBM Quantum Experience. By the end of this book, you'll learn how to build quantum programs on your own and have gained practical quantum computing skills that you can apply to your business.

Chapter 3: Creating Quantum Circuits using Quantum Lab Notebooks

In this chapter, you will learn how to create circuits using the Quantum Lab Notebooks installed on the IBM Quantum Experience. You will learn how to save, import, and leverage existing circuits without having to install anything on your own computer. This will allow you to get a jump start on developing quantum circuits right away and ensure that you will be able to run the tutorials based on the currently installed version.

The following Quantum Information Science Kit (Qiskit) notebook topics will be covered in this chapter:

  • Creating a quantum circuit using Quantum Lab Notebook
  • Opening and importing existing Quantum Lab Notebook
  • Developing a quantum circuit on Quantum Lab Notebook
  • Reviewing results of your quantum circuit on the Quantum Lab Notebook

After completing this chapter, you will be able to leverage the capabilities of the Quantum Lab Notebooks, which will allow you to collaborate...
