Numerical assessments will be done by simulating quantum circuits under realistic conditions defined by the architecture. The main tool for the simulations will be a python based simulator which is currently being developed by Entangled Networks. The simulated quantum circuits will involve many qubits which are represented by large matrices of order 2^n x 2^n where n is the number of qubits. These need to be stored and manipulated at each time step. Operations on these very large arrays are performed across distributed parallel nodes, with access to non-trivial amounts of memory (RAM), current estimate is 64GB per node and a total of 512GB in total.
