Ricardo Pérez del Castillo and Mario Piattini members of aQuantum, have co-authored the article entitled “Design of classical-quantum systems with UML” published in the Computing journal of Springer. The article is available under the Open Access license.

Quantum software engineering has become an important field of research. However, quantum software design poses two main challenges: the modeling of quantum software elements must be done in high-level modeling languages; and the need to further develop so-called “hybrid information systems”, which combine quantum and classical software. To address these challenges, this paper proposes a quantum UML profile for analyzing and designing hybrid information systems; and demonstrates its applicability through various structural and behavioral diagrams, such as use cases, classes, sequences, activities and deployments.

This work is part of the “QHealth: Quantum Pharmacogenomics Applied to Aging”, 2020 CDTI Missions Programme (Center for the Development of Industrial Technology of the Ministry of Science and Innovation of Spain) and FEDER project.

The aQuantum Team congratulates Ricardo and Mario for the publication of this article.
