The quantum internet is an envisioned worldwide quantum network that
promises to enable quantum communication between arbitrary pairs of
distant nodes through the sharing of end-to-end entanglement. To realize
the quantum internet, we need to solve the practical problems that arise
when scaling up a network system, which are already well known to
classical network science but come with new complications when
considered on quantum hardware. I will introduce the problem of
scheduling in classical and quantum networks, propose a preliminary
solution to it through our recently published work “A Linear Algebraic
Framework for Quantum Internet Dynamic Scheduling”, that introduces a
toolbox for designing and benchmarking quantum dynamic scheduling
policies, and show some examples of results that can be derived by
applying our model to a small quantum network example.
