Mitiq: A software package for error mitigation on noisy quantum computers

  title={Mitiq: A software package for error mitigation on noisy quantum computers},
  author={Ryan LaRose and Andrea Mari and Peter J. Karalekas and Nathan Shammah and William J. Zeng},
We introduce an open-source software package for error mitigation in quantum computation using zero-noise extrapolation. Error mitigation techniques improve computational performance (with respect to noise) with minimal overhead in quantum resources by relying on a mixture of quantum sampling and classical post-processing techniques. Our error mitigation package interfaces with multiple quantum computing software stacks, and we demonstrate improved performance on IBM and Rigetti superconducting… Expand
