Comparing with state of art quantum simulators, our library is inspired by quantum circuit optimization. Variational quantum optimization algorithms like quantum circuit Born machine (QCBM), quantum approximate optimization algorithm (QAOA), variational quantum eigensolver (VQE) and quantum circuit learning (QCL) et. al. are promising killer apps on a near term quantum computers. These algorithms require the flexibility to tune parameters and have well defined patterns such as "Arbitrary Rotation Block" and "CNOT Entangler".
In Yao, we call these patterns "blocks". If we regard every gate or gate pattern as a "block", then the framework can
Thanks to Julia's duck type and multiple dispatch features, user can
Yao is a framework that is about to have the following features:
The whole framework is highly modularized, researchers can extend this framework for different purposes.
