So far there are no synthesis algorithms that can find all the optimal quantum boolean circuits except an exhaustive algorithm. In this paper, we propose a method based on the divide and conquer approach which can significantly improve the performance of the existing synthesis algorithms to synthesize quantum boolean circuits. A quantum boolean circuit is first divided into two subcircuits. The subcircuit with fewer gates will input all possible combinations of m gates excluding those with the same function specification. The other subcircuit can be synthesized by using the existing algorithm. The two subcircuits are combined and then we can choose the most simplified quantum boolean circuit. According to the experimental results of all the 3-variable functions, we can see that the performance of the existing algorithms can be significantly improved by using our method. Therefore the synthesized quantum boolean circuits are much more simplified than previous results.
