Several emerging companies are making claims about their quantum computing capabilities. The Department of Defense needs these claims evaluated against known models to objectively compare available systems. This thesis examines the results of tests of quantum circuits on the ibmqx2 and compares them to our own calculations. This thesis provides a bridge between the quantum circuit model as presented in Quantum Computing for Computer Scientists and the compiled circuits provided by IBM. The study is limited to algorithms that can be run with a maximum of five quantum bits.
