Bases: HighLevelSynthesisPlugin

The default clifford synthesis plugin.

For N <= 3 qubits this is the optimal CX cost decomposition by Bravyi, Maslov. For N > 3 qubits this is done using the general non-optimal greedy compilation routine from reference by Bravyi, Hu, Maslov, Shaydulin.

This plugin name is :clifford.default which can be used as the key on an HLSConfig object to use this method with HighLevelSynthesis.
