Dancing with Python
Dancing with Python
About the Book
Develop skills in Python and Quantum Computing by implementing exciting algorithms, mathematical functions, classical searching, data analysis, plotting data, machine learning techniques, and quantum circuits.
- Create quantum circuits and algorithms using Qiskit and run them on quantum computing hardware and simulators
- Learn the Pythonic way to write elegant and efficient code
- Delve into Python's advanced features, including machine learning, analyzing data, and searching
Dancing with Python helps you learn Python and quantum computing in a practical way. It will help you explore how to work with numbers, strings, collections, iterators, and files.
The book goes beyond functions and classes and teaches you to use Python and Qiskit to create gates and circuits for classical and quantum computing. Learn how quantum extends traditional techniques using the Grover Search Algorithm and the code that implements it. Dive into some advanced and widely used applications of Python and revisit strings with more sophisticated tools, such as regular expressions and basic natural language processing (NLP). The final chapters introduce you to data analysis, visualizations, and supervised and unsupervised machine learning.
By the end of the book, you will be proficient in programming the latest and most powerful quantum computers, the Pythonic way.
What you will learn
- Explore different quantum gates and build quantum circuits with Qiskit and Python
- Write succinct code the Pythonic way using magic methods, iterators, and generators
- Analyze data, build basic machine learning models, and plot the results
- Search for information using the quantum Grover Search Algorithm
- Optimize and test your code to run efficiently
Who this book is for
The book will help you get started with coding for Python and Quantum Computing. Basic familiarity with algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and logarithms is required as the book does not cover the detailed mathematics and theory of quantum computing. You can check out the author’s Dancing with Qubits book, also published by Packt, for an approachable and comprehensive introduction to quantum computing.
Founded in 2004 in Birmingham, UK, Packt's mission is to help the world put software to work in new ways, through the delivery of effective learning and information services to IT professionals.
Working towards that vision, we have published over 6,500 books and videos so far, providing IT professionals with the actionable knowledge they need to get the job done - whether that's specific learning on an emerging technology or optimizing key skills in more established tools.
As part of our mission, we have also awarded over $1,000,000 through our Open Source Project Royalty scheme, helping numerous projects become household names along the way.
