The Quantum Computing Toolkit Project is one of the first initiatives in the country to address the common challenge of advancing the Quantum Computing research frontiers in India. The project is accomplished by multidisciplinary groups of academicians, scientists, engineers and industry from various leading organizations including IISc Bengaluru, IIT Roorkee and C-DAC. The QSim is like a playground for anyone passionate to learn or experiment in Quantum Computing, be it students, faculty or researchers. The QSim offers a robust QC Simulator integrated with a GUI based workbench in which you can create quantum circuits and quantum programs, view the outputs, online help, solved examples and related literature / material.
QSim is a first initiative by Government of India to address the common challenge of advancing the Quantum Computing research in India. The platform is available for access to researchers, faculties and students who wants to explore Quantum Computing. An email should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org to get access to QSim.
QSim is based on the Qiskit Framework and Aakash (dm_simulator). The users of QSim is expected to have basic knowledge in Python programming, Qiskit and density matrix formalism. The knowledge base given below provides more information about the prerequisities.
The Qiskit Textbook is a free digital open source textbook that will teach the concepts of Quantum Computing while you learn to use Qiskit. Visit Qiskit Textbook for more information.
Coding with Qiskit
This video series starts at learning how to install Qiskit locally, understanding what gates to do quantum states and explores quantum algorithms and the latest research topics. Visit Coding with Qiskit for more information.
Introduction to Quantum Computing and Quantum Hardware
An introduction to the world of Quantum Computing, with an exploration of some of the key quantum algorithms and their implementations, as well as the quantum hardware that is designed to run these algorithms. Visit Introduction to Quantum Computing and Quantum Hardware for more information.
Essence of Linear Algebra
A geometric understanding of matrices, determinants, eigen-stuffs and more. Visit Essence of Linear Algebra for more information.
Learn about Qiskit Aakash
Qiskit Aakash is a density matrix based software simulator developed by Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru. The links provided in this page aims to explain how to use the new simulator (‘dm_simulator’) that has been added to existing qiskit backends. Visit Learn about Qiskit Aakash for more information.
QSim provide a platform for researchers to explore quantum computers that are difficult to obtain. IISc has developed a realistic quantum computer simulator named dm-sim (based on Density Matrix Formalism). It simulates the behavior/execution of quantum circuits on noise affected realistic quantum computers. Visit Quantum Simulator for more information.
Computers that perform computations using quantum phenomena such as superposition and entanglement, are known as quantum computers. Building a quantum computer is very challenging and expensive, as it requires highly sensitive components and highly controlled environment; physical quantum computers are crippled by errors in the form of noise, faults and loss of quantum coherence.
