  • In this paper, we present CertiQ, a mostly-automated verification framework for the Qiskit quantum compiler. To our knowledge, CertiQ is the first effort to apply formal verification and SMT reasoning to a real-world quantum compiler. Qiskit is currently the most complete and widely-used open-source quantum software stack from low-level compilation to high-level quantum algorithms. With growing community contributions, the Qiskit compiler is in need of code quality control and verification down… CONTINUE READING
