Quantum computation simulation JavaScript library

Build Status

Website: http://davidbkemp.github.io/jsqubits/

The user manual: http://davidbkemp.github.io/jsqubits/jsqubitsManual.html

Try it out online using the jsqubits runner: http://davidbkemp.github.io/jsqubits/jsqubitsRunner.html

Wiki (with examples): https://github.com/davidbkemp/jsqubits/wiki

GitHub: https://github.com/davidbkemp/jsqubits

Node npm module: https://npmjs.org/package/jsqubits

You can use it to implement quantum algorithms using JavaScript like this:

jsqubits('|01>')
    .hadamard(jsqubits.ALL)
    .cnot(1, 0)
    .hadamard(jsqubits.ALL)
    .measure(1)
    .result

WARNING: jsqubits operators return new instances of the quantum state and they do NOT modify the existing object.

If you are new to quantum programming, then it is highly recommended that you try reading John Watrous' Quantum Information and Computation Lecture Notes. You may also wish to try reading the (work in progress) Introduction to Quantum Programming using jsqubits.

Usage

Try it out online using the jsqubits runner: http://davidbkemp.github.io/jsqubits/jsqubitsRunner.html

Use it in your own web application by including the JavaScript files available from GitHub: https://github.com/davidbkemp/jsqubits/tree/master/lib (jsqubits.js is the core library, while jsqubitsmath.js has some maths functions that are useful in some of the well known quantum algorithms). They have optional support for being loaded via require.js (see the simple web page examples in the examples directory).

Use it in a Node application (see http://nodejs.org) :

$ npm install jsqubits
$ node
> qubits = require('jsqubits').jsqubits
> qubits('|0101>').hadamard(qubits.ALL).toString()

REMEMBER: jsqubits operators return new instances of the quantum state and they do NOT modify the existing object.

Development

To run the Jasmine specs, you will need to install Node.js (http://nodejs.org). Then use 'npm install' to install the testing dependencies (Jasmine) and 'npm test' to run the specs. NOTE: The Jasmine specs include an example of factoring using Shor's faction algorithm. This is non-deterministic and can take a fraction of a second or several seconds to complete.
