Amazon Braket provides a fully managed and high-performance tensor network simulator (TN1). This tensor-network-based circuit simulator can support quantum computing simulations with up to 50 qubits, and is particularly powerful for sparse circuits, circuits with local gates, and other circuits with inherent structure.

Most of the quantum computing circuits today come with a specific structure, either defined by the physical layout of a quantum computing device, or customized for a computational problem. This is particularly common in combinatorial optimization problems. The new Amazon Braket tensor network simulator encodes quantum circuits into a graph representation to find an optimized way to process the circuit, based on its structure. This powerful approach enables you to explore and optimize quantum algorithms at a larger qubit scale. You can run your circuit on Amazon Braket using the TN1 simulator today with a single API call.

The Amazon Braket tensor network simulator is available in the US-East (N. Virginia) and US-West (Oregon) AWS Regions. To learn more about Amazon Braket simulators, please read the developer guide, and this example notebook. To get started with quantum computing, visit this page.
