Past Challenges

To help yo usee the kind of challenges we like, here are some examples.


For 200 points...

Challenge: Make a circuit that has output measurements only when the output registers

c[0] xor c[1] == c[2]
Do this in <=7 lines of OpenQASM.

      OPENQASM 2.0;
      include "";
      qreg q[3];
      h q[0];
      cx q[0],q[1];
      cx q[0],q[2];
      h q;
Note that we detected 'lines' by counting semicolons in the checking code. The OpenQASM code was then converted to a quantum circuit and evaluated using the end statevector.

For 10 points...

Challenge: Who is this?

Алексей Юрьевич Китаев
Yeah, you could reverse image search this, like the others... but you had to work out that, because Kitaev is Russian-born, then you'd have to put his name into the answer box in Cyrillic!! Hence you got double points for this picture.
