ClassicalFunction compiler (
The classical function compiler provides the necessary tools to map a classical irreversible functions into quantum circuits. Below is a simple example of how to synthesize a simple boolean function defined using Python into a QuantumCircuit:
from qiskit.circuit import classical_function, Int1 @classical_function def grover_oracle(a: Int1, b: Int1, c: Int1, d: Int1) -> Int1: return (not a and b and not c and d) quantum_circuit = grover_oracle.synth() quantum_circuit.draw()q_0: ──■── │ q_1: ──o── │ q_2: ──■── │ q_3: ──o── ┌─┴─┐ q_4: ┤ X ├ └───┘
Following Qiskit’s little-endian bit ordering convention, the left-most bit (a) is the most significant bit and the right-most bit (d) is the least significant bit. The resulting
Tweedledum is a C++-17 header-only library that implements a large set of reversible (and quantum) synthesis, optimization, and mapping algorithms. The classical function compiler relies on it and its dependencies to both represent logic networks and synthesize them into quantum circuits.
ClassicalFunction data types
At the moment, the only type supported by the classical_function compilers is
qiskit.circuit.classicalfunction.types.Int1. The classical function function
to parse must include type hints (just
Int1 for now). The resulting gate
will be a gate in the size of the sum of all the parameters and the return.
Int1 means the classical function will only operate at bit level.
