Simulation and Design of Quantum Circuits

Reversible Computation: Extending Horizons of Computing
Currently, there is an ongoing "race" to build the first practically useful quantum computer that provides substantial speed-ups for certain problems compared to conventional computers. In addition to the development of such devices, this also requires the development of automated tools and methods that provide assistance in the simulation and design of corresponding applications. Otherwise, a situation might be reached where we have powerful quantum computers but hardly any proper means to actually use them. This work provides an overview of corresponding solutions for the task of quantum circuit simulation, the task of quantum circuit design, as well as corresponding mapping tasks. The covered solutions utilise expertise on efficient data structures and algorithms gained in the design of conventional circuits and systems over the last decades. While the respective descriptions are kept brief and mainly convey the general ideas, references to further readings are provided for a more detailed treatment.
