    • Clifford Simulation: Techniques and Applications 

      Kerzner, Alexander (University of Waterloo, 2021-05-28)
      Despite the widespread belief that quantum computers cannot be efficiently simulated classically, efficient simulation is known to be possible in certain restricted regimes. In particular, the Gottesman-Knill theorem states ...
    • Moments of Random Quantum Circuits and Applications in Random Circuit Sampling 

      Liu, Yinchen (University of Waterloo, 2021-12-23)
      Random quantum circuits and random circuit sampling (RCS) have recently garnered tremendous attention from all sub-fields of the quantum information community, especially after Google’s quantum supremacy announcement in ...
    • On the Power and Limitations of Shallow Quantum Circuits 

      Parham, Natalie (University of Waterloo, 2022-09-01)
      Constant-depth quantum circuits, or shallow quantum circuits, have been shown to exhibit behavior that is uniquely quantum. This thesis explores the power and limitations of constant-depth quantum circuits, in particular ...
