QuantumOptics.jl: A Julia framework for simulating open quantum systems

Published: 15 Mar 2018 | Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/3696r5jhm4.1

Description of this data

We present an open source computational framework geared towards the efficient numerical investigation of open quantum systems written in the Julia programming language. Built exclusively in Julia and based on standard quantum optics notation, the toolbox offers speed comparable to low-level statically typed languages, without compromising on the accessibility and code readability found in dynamic languages. After introducing the framework, we highlight its features and showcase implementations of generic quantum models. Finally, we compare its usability and performance to two well-established and widely used numerical quantum libraries.
