It is important to reduce the physical resource costs for interesting quantum algorithms as quickly as possible. Small-scale, cloud-based NISQ machines sparked the interest of exact, realistic and non asymptotic resource estimations. It is still uncertain if any valuable quantum algorithm is possible without incorporating costly error-correction protocols that make estimation far more complex. This talk presents the methodology basics and the software tools for estimating the number of physical qubits and the time necessary to execute fault-tolerant quantum computations.
