Abstract:

We present new imperative quantum programming language LanQ which was designed to support combination of quantum and classical programming and basic process operations -- process creation and interprocess communication. The language can thus be used for implementing both classical and quantum algorithms and protocols. Its syntax is similar to that of C language what makes it easy to learn for existing programmers. In this paper, we present operational semantics of the language. We provide an example run of a quantum random number generator.
