Extensible Markup Language for Quantum Information Science... Arxiv...

Dear public-informationarchitecture@w3.org
& public-xformsusers@w3.org,

It may make an interest as part of readings on "information architecture"
and "XFORMS" in attempting such an understanding on "quantum computing" and
related ones...:

QIS-XML: An Extensible MarkupLanguage for Quantum Information Science

Abstract: This Master thesis examines issues of interoperability and
integration between the Classic Information Science (CIS) and Quantum
Information Science (QIS). It provides a short introduction to the
Extensible Markup Language (XML) and proceeds to describe the development
steps that have lead to a prototype XML specification for quantum
computing (QIS-XML).
QIS-XML is a proposed framework, based on the widely used standard (XML) to
describe, visualize, exchange and process quantum gates and quantum
circuits. It also provides a potential approach to a genericprogramming
language for quantumcomputers through the concept of XML driven compilers.
Examples are provided for the description of commonly used quantum gates
and circuits, accompanied with tools to visualize them in standard web
browsers. An algorithmic example is also presented, performing a simple
addition operation with quantum circuits and running the programon a
quantum computer simulator. Overall, this initial effort demonstrates how
XML technologies could be at the core of the architecture for describing and
programming quantum computers. By leveraging a widely accepted standard,
QIS-XML also builds a bridge between classic and quantum IT, which could
foster the acceptance of QIS by the ICT community and facilitate the
understanding of quantum technology by IT experts. This would support the
consolidation of Classic Information Science and Quantum Information
Science into a Complete Information Science, a challenge that could be
referred to as the "Information Science Grand Unification Challenge". △ Less
