Guido Peterssen, José Luis Hevia and Mario Piattini, members of aQuantum, have edited in Spanish the book “Ingeniería del Software Cuántico & QuantumPath®” (Quantum Software Engineering & QuantumPath®) in which a dozen members of aQuantum participate as authors of different chapters. The book’s authors insist that for quantum applications to be truly useful, they must be developed in accordance with Software Engineering best practices, ensuring their quality, and using a platform that insulates software engineers from implementation details and provides them with adequate support, such as QuantumPath®.

The book presents a broad theoretical and practical content that summarizes some of the extensive research and development work carried out by aQuantum in the field of Quantum Software Engineering and Programming. As shown below, the logical exposition of the book is organized through three parts, flows through 14 Chapters, and is supplemented by 2 Appendices:

Part I. Fundamentals
Chapter 1: QuantumPath®
Chapter 2: QuantumPath® and Quantum Software Engineering

Part II. Quantum Software Engineering Best Practices
Chapter 3: Quantum Software Life cycle
Chapter 4: Management for Quantum IT Services
Chapter 5: Graphical Interfaces for Quantum Development
Chapter 6: Modernizing Quantum Systems
Chapter 7: Quantum Software Testing
Chapter 8: Quantum Software Quality
Chapter 9: Hybrid Systems

Part III. Use cases
Chapter 10: Deutsch-Jozsa Algorithm
Chapter 11: Teleportation Algorithm
Chapter 12: Algorithm of the “Knights of the Square Table” problem
Chapter 13: Applications in Finance
Chapter 14: Health Applications

Appendices
Appendix  I. Implementation of QuantumPath® on AWS
Appendix II. QuantumPath® Evaluation

As Juan Moreno from AWS points out in the foreword: “Quantum computing needs to transcend the laboratory environment with professionals who speak the language of industry and business, and who evangelize the technology in a language familiar to traditional IT professionals, with rigor and building bridges to facilitate the integration of heterogeneous groups. aQuantum is a great example of such synergy“.

From aQuantum within the mission of quantum literacy that we set ourselves since our inception and in order to transmit the lessons and knowledge acquired over the years, we hope that this book can contribute to the production of quantum software with sufficient quality and productivity, which is the cornerstone for the dissemination of quantum computing.

The aQuantum Team congratulates Guido, Pepe, Mario and all the authors for this publication and their contribution to the dissemination of Quantum Computing.

The book (for now in Spanish) is available on Amazon.
