The software package Qcompiler (Chen and Wang 2013) provides a general quantum compilation framework, which maps any given unitary operation into a quantum circuit consisting of a sequential set of elementary quantum gates. In this paper, we present an extended software OptQC, which finds permutation matrices P and Q for a given unitary matrix U such that the number of gates in the quantum circuit of U = QT PTU'PQ is significantly reduced, where U? is equivalent to U up to a permutation and the quantum circuit implementation of each matrix component is considered separately. We extend further this software package to make use of high-performance computers with a multiprocessor architecture using MPI.Wedemonstrate its effectiveness in reducing the total number of quantum gates required for various unitary operators.
