Silq: A High-Level Quantum Language with Safe Uncomputation and Intuitive Semantics

zoedreams profile image ☮️✝️☪️🕉☸️✡️☯️ Updated on ・1 min read

This is the research white paper that inspired the new quantum computing language named Silq. This was inspired; much like a phoenix rising from the ashes of Microsofts first successful attempt at release QaaS (Quantum as a Service) through periodic contests. This language's resolves the problematic issues of qubits getting wonky W states or biased.

Silq Whitepaper

This provides a great foundation of dictionary terms within this exciting new field of computer science.

I would also like to mention that quantum entangled states are in essence immutable.

No-Cloning. The no-cloning theorem states that cloning
an arbitrary quantum state is unphysical: we cannot achieve
the operation φ 7→ φ ⊗φ. Silq’s type system prevents cloning.

One primary things this article and langauge aim to solve is efficent pattern matching using the work of tensor flows pioneered by David Clarke; which you can read more about here

Thank you for reading.
