Scheduling of Operations in Quantum Compiler
When scheduling quantum operations, a shorter overall execution time of the resulting schedule yields a better throughput and higher fidelity output. In this paper, we demonstrate that quantum operation scheduling can be interpreted as a special type of job-shop problem. On this basis, we provide its formulation as Constraint Programming while taking into account commutation between quantum operations. We show that this formulation improves the overall execution time of the resulting schedules in practice through experiments with a real quantum compiler and quantum circuits from two common benchmark sets.
