CutQC (legacy circuit cutting implementation)

The cutqc module implements the wire cutting technique and automatic cut finding method described in the research paper arXiv:2012.02333. Historically, this was the original circuit cutting implementation in the Circuit Knitting Toolbox. Going forward, this module is deprecated. Users of the toolbox should use the new circuit cutting interface, instead.

CutQC Tutorials

  • Tutorial 1: Perform circuit cutting with automated cut finding, using a mixed-integer programming model.

  • Tutorial 2: Perform circuit cutting by manually specifying wire cut locations.
