Increase the number of qubits for QC simulator necessary ?
I am just curious whether to increase the number of qubits at a QC simulator is necessary or not.
Currently, most QC simulators are running in a single CPU environment. However, I am thinking about implement a QC simulator in an environment which could significantly increase the number of qubits so that we can try more strategies to use the power of quantum computers when one day the real QC comes true.
Theoretical work on quantum computation usually assumes the existence of
units that perform highly idealized unitary operations. However, in practice these
operations are difficult to realize: Disregarding decoherence, a hardware implementation
of a QC will perform unitary operations that are more complicated than those
considered in most theoretical work. Therefore it is important to have theoretical
tools to validate designs of physically realizable quantum processors.
