Docker containers are nice and offer a very lean and structured way to package and deploy applications. However, if you really want to run large scale containerized applications, you need more - you need to deploy, orchestrate and manager all your containers in a highly customizable and automated way. In other words, you need a … Continue reading Kubernetes – an overview

# Factoring integers on a quantum computer with Qiskit

After all the work done in the previous posts, we are now ready to actually implement Shor's factoring algorithm on a real quantum computer, using once more IBMs Q Experience and the Qiskit framework. First, recall that Shor's algorithm is designed to factor an integer M, with the restriction that M is supposed to be … Continue reading Factoring integers on a quantum computer with Qiskit

# Quantum phase estimation – the quantum algorithm Swiss army knife

When you are faced with a problem in linear algebra and have absolutely no idea what to do, an eigenvalue decomposition is the one thing that you would typically try first. In the world of quantum algorithms, the situation is similar - finding the eigenvalues of a matrix is a central building block of many … Continue reading Quantum phase estimation – the quantum algorithm Swiss army knife
