Mitiq is a Python toolkit for implementing error mitigation techniques on quantum computers.

Current quantum computers are noisy due to interactions with the environment, imperfect gate applications, state preparation and measurement errors, etc. Error mitigation seeks to reduce these effects at the software level by compiling quantum programs in clever ways.

Want to know more? Check out our documentation and chat with us on Discord.

Do you use near-term quantum hardware? Have you tried Mitiq? Either way, take our survey and help make Mitiq better! bit.ly/mitiq-survey

Quickstart

Installation

pip install mitiq

Example

Define a function which inputs a circuit and returns an expectation value you want to compute, then use Mitiq to mitigate errors.

import cirq
from mitiq import zne, benchmarks


def execute(circuit: cirq.Circuit, noise_level: float = 0.001) -> float:
    """Returns Tr[ρ |0⟩⟨0|] where ρ is the state prepared by the circuit with depolarizing noise."""
    noisy_circuit = circuit.with_noise(cirq.depolarize(p=noise_level))
    return cirq.DensityMatrixSimulator().simulate(noisy_circuit).final_density_matrix[0, 0].real


circuit: cirq.Circuit = benchmarks.generate_rb_circuits(n_qubits=1, num_cliffords=50)[0]

true_value = execute(circuit, noise_level=0.0)       # Ideal quantum computer.
noisy_value = execute(circuit)                       # Noisy quantum computer.
zne_value = zne.execute_with_zne(circuit, execute)   # Noisy quantum computer + Mitiq.

print(f"Error (w/o  Mitiq): %0.4f" %abs((true_value - noisy_value) / true_value))
print(f"Error (with Mitiq): %0.4f" %abs((true_value - zne_value) / true_value))

Sample output:

Error (w/o  Mitiq): 0.0688
Error (with Mitiq): 0.0002

See our guides and examples for more explanation, techniques, and benchmarks. The examples and other notebooks can be run interactively on the cloud with mybinder.org.

See our roadmap for additional candidate techniques to implement. If there is a technique you are looking for, please file a feature request.

Interface

We refer to any programming language you can write quantum circuits in as a frontend, and any quantum computer / simulator you can simulate circuits in as a backend.

Supported frontends

Cirq Qiskit pyQuil Braket PennyLane
Cirq logo Qiskit logo Rigetti logo AWS logo    PennyLane logo

Note: Cirq is a core requirement of Mitiq and is installed when you pip install mitiq.

Supported backends

You can use Mitiq with any backend you have access to that can interface with supported frontends.

Benchmarks

Mitiq uses asv to benchmark the core functionalities of the project. They are found in the benchmarks/ directory and their changes can be seen overtime at https://benchmarks.mitiq.dev/.

Citing Mitiq

If you use Mitiq in your research, please reference the Mitiq whitepaper using the bibtex entry found in CITATION.bib.

A list of papers citing Mitiq can be found on Google Scholar / Semantic Scholar.
