Of mountains circling every side;

Parameters of Pseudo-Random Quantum Circuits

Parameters of Pseudo-Random Quantum Circuits
The qubits have been arranged in an open chain ((cid:13)), a star formation (∗), a closed chain ((cid:3)), and in such a way that all the qubits are connected to each other (♦).
