Programming on quantum computers, Part 4: Building blocks of quantum circuits

About this video

Quantum circuits are a compilation of quantum gates and can be used to make qubits, or quantum bits, do all sorts of interesting things. The key to understanding quantum circuits, whether complicated or simple, is to understand how quantum gates act on the individual qubits. In part 4 of the “Programming on quantum computers” series, Abe shares four helpful X gate representations to give you a better understanding of how quantum gates work.

About the series

The “Programming on quantum computers” series introduces you to quantum computers and shows you how to program quantum algorithms on them. Once you understand how to program quantum computers using Qiskit, you can focus on various application areas, including quantum chemistry, the development of quantum algorithms, and even learn how to program games based on quantum computing.
