An analysis of ontological entities to represent knowledge on quantum computing algorithms and implementations
The field of quantum computing is developing rapidly. As a result, a variety of quantum hardware, software development kits, and quantum algorithms have been developed in recent years. However, knowledge about these artifacts is either not available or spread among different sources. Thus, to analyze, compare, and evaluate knowledge on quantum computing an integrated knowledge base is required. In this paper, we introduce key concepts of an ontology for quantum algorithms and their implementations. The presented ontology serves as basis for a collaborative platform for researchers and practitioners to support collection and development of knowledge on the field of quantum computing.
