Hello! I’m Sarah Marshall, a senior studying computer science at the University of Washington. Some of my interests are software engineering, programming languages, and quantum computing. I also have two cats! 🐈🐈
This is my personal website and blog where sometimes I might write about cool things I find or projects that I’ve been involved with.
A great thing you can do with quantum simulators that you can’t do with a real quantum computer is peek inside at the quantum state. Why would you want to do this? Well, often in the course of developing a quantum program, something goes wrong, and it’s helpful to inspect the quantum state to try to find where the problem is, much like you would add print statements to debug a classical program. Or perhaps nothing is wrong, but you want to trace the execution of a quantum algorithm for demonstration purposes.
