Quantum Hoare Type Theory

Toward a unified system for programming, specifying, and reasoning about quantum programs.

Quantum Hoare Type Theory

As quantum computers become real, it is high time we come up with effective techniques that help programmers write correct quantum programs. Inspired by Hoare Type Theory in classical computing, we propose Quantum Hoare Type Theory (QHTT) in which …

Quantum Hoare Type Theory: Extended Abstract

As quantum computers become real, it is high time we come up with effective techniques that help programmers write correct quantum programs. In classical computing, formal verification and sound static type systems prevent several classes of bugs …

Verified translation between low-level quantum languages

We describe the ongoing development of a verified translator between OpenQASM (Open Quantum Assembly Language) and sqir, a Small Quantum Intermediate Representation used for circuit optimization. Verified translation from and to OpenQASM will allow …
