Theoretically, quantum computers are known to solve a certain class of problems more efficiently than their classical counterparts. This is due to parallelism which is inherent in quantum algorithms. However, a full-scale quantum computer has not been realized as yet. Therefore, in order to validate and debug quantum circuits, a classical computer is used. Since most of these circuits are simulated using personal computers (PCs), quantum circuits with a limited number of quantum bits (qubits) can only be simulated, due to computational limitations of PCs. In this work, we report the simulation of quantum circuits on a high performance platform using message passing interface for the Python (mpi4py) package.
