**Quantum Circuit Decomposition**

from unitary matrices into elementary gates

Prologue In classical logic synthesis, one may trivially decompose any boolean function into an OR of ANDs (sum of products) Local optimizations may then be applied to shrink the resulting circuit Can the same be done in the quantum case?

QR-Decomposition Given a vector (a,b), this SU(2) matrix kills the second coordinate

27
**QR-Decomposition The vector (a,b) might be sitting inside a matrix:**

Think of this as a rotation of the plane in which the 3rd and 4th coordinates live Note that this matrix is unitary

**Making it a Circuit The general case is not much harder**

First, flip all bits that are 0 in both j,j+1 Then, CNOT every remaining bit that is zero in j+1, controlling by the unique bit that is 1 in j+1 and 0 in j Finally, switch this unique bit with the low bit

Conclusion A unitary matrix can be written as a product of planar rotations A planar rotation can be written as ZUZ-1, where Z can be decomposed into CNOT and NOT gates, and U is a (higher order) controlled-U gate A higher order controlled-U gate can be written as a sequence of CNOT gates and singly controlled-U gates A controlled-U gate can be written as a sequence of CNOT gates and one-qubit rotations

47
Epilogue The number of gates in this decomposition is exponential in the number of qubits For certain operators, much smaller circuits are known to exist Can we automate the process of moving towards these?
