Presenting the Final Results of AztecHacks2024

AztecHacks2024, the inaugural hackathon hosted by the Quantum Computing Club at San Diego State University, has reached its conclusion. This event aims to unite quantum computing enthusiasts from across the United States in a collaborative and innovative environment. Participants will tackle 10 progressively difficult quantum computing challenges using the Classiq SDK and platform, demonstrating their skills in creativity and effective problem-solving. Without delay, let's take a look at the final results!

🥇1st Place

Ian Hock and David Kaauwai

Specified quantum problems and TANH()

implements the specified quantum algorithms in Classiq and also implements the first two terms of hyperbolic tangent using quantum bits and Classiq.

🥈2nd Place

Yasir Mansour

3-qubit implementation of GHZ states

GHZ What it computes: Computes GHZ state for 3 qubits; Mathematical description: for 3 qubits generates state 111 (2^3 -1 =7) or state 000; Parameters: none; Result: should be 7 (for 111) or 0 (for 000).

🥉3rd Place

Hisham Mansour

Werner state W3 in Classiq SDK

This notebook (algorithms) implements the W3 Werner state. It is a superposition of all states that have only 1 qubit set to 1 with the rest being 0. It uses a decomposed Toffoli gate in form of a sequence of CNOTs. It yields the states '001', 010' and '100' in superposition.

The notebook "functions" implements largely arithmetic functions using the Classiq SDK.
