Expectations for Program Contents¶
The QPUs have much more limited natural gate sets than the standard gate set offered by pyQuil: the gate operators are constrained to lie in
CZ; and the gates are required to act on physically available hardware (for single-qubit gates, this means acting only on live qubits, and for qubit-pair gates, this means acting on neighboring qubits).
To ameliorate these limitations, the QPU execution stack contains an optimizing compiler that translates arbitrary ProtoQuil to QPU-executable Quil. The compiler is designed to avoid changing even non-semantic details of input Quil code, except to make it shorter when possible. For instance, it will not readdress Quil code that is already appropriately addressed to physically realizable hardware objects on the QPU. The following figure illustrates the layout and addressing of the Rigetti 8Q-Agave QPU.
Interacting with the Compiler¶
QPUConnection classes in pyQuil offer indirect support for interacting with the compiler: they are both capable of submitting jobs to the compiler for preprocessing before the job is forwarded to the execution target. This behavior is disabled by default for the QVM and enabled by default for the QPU. PyQuil also offers the
CompilerConnection class for direct access to the compiler, which returns compiled Program jobs to the user without executing them.
CompilerConnection can be used to learn about the properties of the program, like gate volume, single qubit gate depth, topological swaps, program fidelity and multiqubit gate depth. In all cases, the user’s Forest plan must have compiler access enabled to use these features.
Here’s an example of using
CompilerConnection to compile a program that targets the 8Q-Agave QPU, separately from sending a program to the QPU/QVM.

QPUConnection objects have their compiler interactions set up in the same way: the
.runBuckle Shelly Black Strap Extended Leather Wide Faux Width Calf Scrunch Twisted Boot High Women's Riding Suede Knee HqPwSS and
.run_and_measure methods take the optional arguments
isa that respectively toggle the compilation preprocessing step and provide the compiler with a target instruction set architecture, specified as a pyQuil
ISA object. The compiler can be bypassed by passing the method parameter
needs_compilation=False. If the
isa named argument is not set, then the
default_isa property on the connection object is used instead. The compiled program can be accessed after a job has been submitted to the QPU by using the
.compiled_quil() accessor method on the resulting
Job object instance.
Region-specific compiler features through PRAGMA¶
The Quil compiler can also be communicated with through
PRAGMA commands embedded in the Quil program.
The compiler can be circumvented in user-specified regions. The start of such a region is denoted by
PRAGMA PRESERVE_BLOCK, and the end is denoted by
PRAGMA END_PRESERVE_BLOCK. The Quil compiler promises not to modify any instructions contained in such a region.
The following is an example of a program that prepares a Bell state on qubits 0 and 1, then performs a time delay to invite noisy system interaction before measuring the qubits. The time delay region is marked by
PRAGMA PRESERVE_BLOCK and
PRAGMA END_PRESERVE_BLOCK; without these delimiters, the compiler will remove the identity gates that serve to provide the time delay. However, the regions outside of the
PRAGMA region will still be compiled, converting the Bell state preparation to the native gate set.

The compiler can sometimes arrange gate sequences more cleverly if the user gives it hints about sequences of gates that commute. A region containing commuting sequences is bookended by
PRAGMA COMMUTING_BLOCKS and
PRAGMA END_COMMUTING_BLOCKS; within such a region, a given commuting sequence is bookended by
PRAGMA BLOCK and
The following snippet demonstrates this hinting syntax in a context typical of VQE-type algorithms: after a first stage of performing some state preparation on individual qubits, there is a second stage of “mixing operations” that both re-use qubit resources and mutually commute, followed by a final rotation and measurement. The following program is naturally laid out on a ring with vertices (read either clockwise or counterclockwise) as 0, 1, 2, 3. After scheduling the first round of preparation gates, the compiler will use the hinting to schedule the first and third blocks (which utilize qubit pairs 0-1 and 2-3) before the second and fourth blocks (which utilize qubit pairs 1-2 and 0-3), resulting in a reduction in circuit depth by one half. Without hinting, the compiler will instead execute the blocks in their written order.

When a Quil program contains multi-qubit instructions that do not name qubit-qubit links present on a target device, the compiler will rearrange the qubits so that execution becomes possible. In order to help the user understand what rearrangement may have been done, the compiler emits two forms of
PRAGMA EXPECTED_REWIRING and
PRAGMA CURRENT_REWIRING. From the perspective of the user, both
PRAGMA instructions serve the same purpose:
PRAGMA ..._REWIRING "#(n0 n1 ... nk)" indicates that the logical qubit labeled
j in the program has been assigned to lie on the physical qubit labeled
nj on the device. This is strictly for human-readability: user-supplied instructions of the form
PRAGMA ..._REWIRING are discarded and have no effect.
The compiler will not rearrange qubits in programs which already map perfectly onto the target device, leaving it entirely up to the user to select high-fidelity configurations of qubits.
Common Error Messages¶
The compiler itself is subject to some limitations, and some of the more commonly observed errors follow:
! ! ! Error: Failed to select a SWAP instruction. Perhaps the qubit graph is disconnected?This error indicates a readdressing failure: some non-native Quil could not be reassigned to lie on native devices. Two common reasons for this failure are:
- It is possible for the readdressing problem to be too difficult for the compiler to sort out, causing deadlock.
- If a qubit-qubit gate is requested to act on two qubit resources that lie on disconnected regions of the qubit graph, the addresser will fail.
! ! ! Error: Matrices do not lie in the samePlatino Lace Glitter Haan Fashion Leather Sneaker OX Grandpro Tennis Women's Cole Xvgxqwzv projective class.The compiler attempted to decompose an operator as native Quil instructions, and the resulting instructions do not match the original operator. This can happen when the original operator is not a unitary matrix, and could indicate an invalid
! ! ! Error: Addresser loop only supports pure Women's Loafer Suede Flat Navy Toe With Arch Slip Shoes Smoking Jasper Gold Faux Support Comfort On quantum instructions.The compiler inspected an instruction that it does not understand. The most common cause of this error is the inclusion of classical control in a program submission, which is legal Quil but falls outside of the domain of ProtoQuil.
