The Circuit Model of Quantum Computation and Its Simulation with Mathematica
We consider an application of the Mathematica package QuantumCircuit to simulation of quantum circuits implementing two of the best known quantum algorithms, namely, the Grover search algorithm and the Shor algorithm for order finding. The algorithms are discussed in detail and concrete examples of their application are demonstrated. The main features of the package QuantumCircuit which can be used for the simulation of an arbitrary quantum algorithm are briefly described.
