QuTiP is open-source software for simulating the dynamics of open quantum systems. QuTiP aims to provide user-friendly and efficient numerical simulations of a wide variety of Hamiltonians, including those with arbitrary time-dependence, commonly found in a wide range of physics applications such as quantum optics, trapped ions, superconducting circuits, and quantum nanomechanical resonators.
2 Versions and Availability
A list of versions currently available on all bwHPC-C5-Clusters can be obtained from the
On the commandline you can get a list of the available versions using
$ module avail phys/qutip
3 Loading the module
You can load the default version of QuTiP with the command
$ module load phys/qutip
If you wish to load a specific (older) version, you can do so using e.g.
$ module load phys/qutip/0.0.0
to load the version 0.0.0
The examples can be copied to the home directory with
$ cp -r $QUTIP_EXA_DIR ~
There are different examples which demonstrate various features of QuTiP. All these examples are taken from the installation package from QuTiP but are slightly modified to show how to use the Fortran Monte-Carlo solver and to save the resulting images to a file.
- The module help page contains information on how many cores are used by QuTiP.
- Try to use the Fortran Monte-Carlo solver (f90mc) instead of the standard solver. It's much faster.
