To quickly install Qibo and a lightweight simulator for CPU, open a
python >= 3.8 and type:
pip install qibo
This will install the basic primitives to start coding quantum applications.
Instead, if you use conda type:
conda install -c conda-forge qibo
qibo package alone includes a lightweight
numpy simulator for
single-thread CPU. Please visit the backends
documentation for more details about simulation backends.
Here an example of Quantum Fourier Transform (QFT) to test your installation:
from qibo.models import QFT # Create a QFT circuit with 15 qubits circuit = QFT(15) # Simulate final state wavefunction default initial state is |00> final_state = circuit()
Here an example of adding gates and measurements:
import numpy as np from qibo import Circuit, gates c = Circuit(2) c.add(gates.X(0)) # Add a measurement register on both qubits c.add(gates.M(0, 1)) # Execute the circuit with the default initial state |00>. result = c(nshots=100)
