Interconnecting small quantum computers will be essential in the future for creating large-scale, robust quantum computers. Methods for distributing monolithic quantum algorithms efficiently are, thus, needed. In this article, we consider an approach for distributing the accelerated variational quantum eigensolver algorithm over arbitrary sized—in terms of number of qubits—distributed quantum computers. We consider approaches for distributing qubit assignments of the Ansatz states required to… 
Short-Range Microwave Networks to Scale Superconducting Quantum Computation
A core challenge for superconducting quantum computers is to scale up the number of qubits in each processor without increasing noise or cross-talk. Distributing a quantum computer across nearby
Network Intelligence with Quantum Computing in 6G and B6G: Design Principles and Future Directions
TLDR
The design principles of centralized and distributed architectures, where quantum computers are deployed in the remote cloud or geographically distributed at the edge, respectively are illustrated to point out open issues and future research directions.
Quantum Algorithms and Simulation for Parallel and Distributed Quantum Computing
TLDR
This work explicitly defines what it means for a quantum algorithm to be distributed and then presents various quantum algorithms that fit the definition and presents the Interlin-q software framework, a simulation platform that aims to simplify designing and verifying parallel and distributed quantum algorithms.
Distributed quantum computing with QMPI
TLDR
An extension of the Message Passing Interface (MPI) is introduced to enable high-performance implementations of distributed quantum algorithms, and a performance model for distributed quantum computing, SENDQ, is presented, inspired by the classical LogP model.

Imperfect Distributed Quantum Phase Estimation
TLDR
This work considers the effects on the output fidelity of a quantum algorithm when using noisy shared entangled states and presents two distribution schemes for the algorithm, giving the resource requirements for both and showing that using less noisy share entangled states results in a higher overall fidelity.

TLDR
A parallel quantum search algorithm is presented that can be used by algorithm designers without worrying whether the underlying architecture supports the connectivity of the circuit and improves the time–space trade-off for the element distinctness and collision finding problems.
Arithmetic on a distributed-memory quantum multicomputer
TLDR
It is shown that the teledata approach performs better, and that carry-ripple adders perform well when the teleportation block is decomposed so that the key quantum operations can be parallelized.
Distributed quantum computing: a distributed Shor algorithm
TLDR
In this paper, entanglement is used as a resource for implementing non-local operations between two or more quantum computers that are used to implement a distributed factoring circuit with polynomially many gates.
A variational eigenvalue solver on a photonic quantum processor
TLDR
The proposed approach drastically reduces the coherence time requirements and combines this method with a new approach to state preparation based on ansätze and classical optimization, enhancing the potential of quantum resources available today and in the near future.
Distributed quantum computing: a new frontier in distributed systems or science fiction?

This paper introduces the Quantum Internet as the fundamental underlying infrastructure of the Distributed Quantum Computing ecosystem and elaborates on a high-level system abstraction of thedistributed quantum Computing ecosystem, described through a set of logical layers.
Practical Quantum Computing: The value of local computation.
TLDR
This paper discusses three key bottlenecks in near-term quantum computers: bandwidth restrictions arising from data transfer between central processing units (CPUs) and quantumprocessing units (QPUs), latency delays in the hardware for round-trip communication, and timing restrictions driven by high error rates.
Communication Links for Distributed Quantum Computation
TLDR
It is shown that the performance and reliability penalty for using serial links is small for a broad range of physical parameters, making serial links preferable for a large, distributed quantum multicomputer when engineering difficulties are considered.
Optimal local implementation of nonlocal quantum gates
TLDR
It is shown that one bit of classical communication in eachdirection is both necessary and sufficient for the nonlocal implementation of the quantum CNOT, while in general two bits in each direction is required for the implementation of a general two-bit quantum gate.
