A categorical order theory of pulse scheduling for gate-based quantum computing

Axel Andersson, MPENM Engineering Mathematics and Computational Science, presents his master thesis titled "A categorical order theory of pulse scheduling for gate-based quantum computing".

Supervisor: Miroslav Dobsicek
Opponent: Adam Yacine Smaili

We define a preorder on a function space of complex valued integrable functions on the non-negative real numbers. This preorder is then used to develop a scheduling theory for microwave pulse schedules with an application for quantum computer experiments on superconducting circuits. The scheduling theory is further developed in a categorical framework using a subcategory of Ord, the category of preordered sets and order-preserving mappings between them.
A Python library was written which applies the theory by translating IBM Qiskit OpenPulse schedules to Quantify schedules. This library was then used to conduct single qubit characterisation experiments, such as resonator spectroscopy, two-tone spectroscopy, Rabi oscillation, Ramsey oscillation, relaxation time (T1) and qubit state discrimination experiments.
