I am trying to develop new reversible logic synthesis algorithm. But I need a good quantum cost measure for a synthesized circuit to compare my results with existing ones.
For now I'm using RCViewer+ software to calculate quantum cost of a circuit. Unfortunately, I was told that this software is based on an outdated technique and that I should use "T-count for fault tolerant logical-level implementations".
My questions are:
- Which quantum cost measure is the most up-to-date and widely used?
- Is there any software to calculate it automatically?
- if yes, which input format for a circuit should I use?
- if no, where can I read about this cost measure and how to calculate it manually?
If it is matter, my software produces circuits consisting of Toffoli gates with multiple control inputs, both positive and negative ones.
