cuQuantum Appliance

Welcome to the cuQuantum Appliance documentation!

NVIDIA cuQuantum Appliance is a highly performant multi-GPU solution for quantum circuit simulation. It contains NVIDIA’s cuStateVec and cuTensorNet libraries which optimize state vector and tensor network simulation, respectively. cuQuantum Python is also installed, offering not only Python bindings for both libraries but also a high-level, pythonic interface for cuTensorNet.

With the cuStateVec library, NVIDIA provides the following simulators:

  • IBM’s Qiskit Aer frontend via cusvaer, NVIDIA’s distributed state vector backend solver.

  • An optimized multi-GPU Google Cirq frontend via qsim, Google’s state vector simulator.

The cuQuantum Appliance is released under the NVIDIA cuQuantum SDK license.
