Qu&Co comments on this publication:

In this paper, Patrick J. Coles et al., aim to explain the principles of quantum programming straight-forward algebra that makes understanding the underlying quantum mechanics optional (but still fascinating). The authors give an introduction to quantum computing algorithms and their implementation on real quantum hardware and survey 20 different quantum algorithms, attempting to describe each in a succinct and self-contained fashion. They show how these algorithms can be implemented on an actual quantum-processor (in this case an IBM QPU) and in each case discuss the results of the implementation with respect to differences of the results on a simulator (QVM) or the actual processor (QPU).
