    • Better support of constant QobjEvo. (by Boxi Li )

    πŸ‘Œ Improvements

    • QobjEvo do not need to start from 0 anymore. (by Eric Giguere )
    • Add a quantum object purity function. (by Nathan Shammah and Shahnawaz Ahmed )
    • Add step function interpolation for array time-coefficient. (by Boxi Li )
  • v4.4.0

    July 04, 2019

    πŸš€ The release of QuTiP 4.4.0

    πŸ‘Œ Improvements

    MAJOR FEATURE : Added methods and techniques to the stochastic solvers (by Eric Giguère ) which allows to use a much broader set of solvers and much more efficiently.

    MAJOR FEATURE : Optimization of the montecarlo solver (by Eric Giguère ). Computation are faster in many cases. Collapse information available to time dependant information.

    Added the QObjEvo class and methods (by Eric Giguère ), which is used behind the scenes by the dynamical solvers, making the code more efficient and tidier. More built-in function available to string coefficients. The coefficients can be made from interpolated array with variable timesteps and can obtain state information more easily. Time-dependant collapse operator can have multiple terms.

    New wigner_transform and plot_wigner_sphere function. (by Nithin Ramu ).

    ptrace is faster and work on bigger systems, from 15 Qbits to 30 Qbits.

    πŸ›  QIP module: added the possibility for user-defined gates, added the possibility to remove or add gates in any point of an already built circuit, added the molmer_sorensen gate, and fixed some bugs (by Boxi Li ).

    Added the quantum Hellinger distance to qutip.metrics (by Wojciech Rzadkowski ).

    Implemented possibility of choosing a random seed (by Marek marekyggdrasil ).

    βž• Added a code of conduct to Github.

    πŸ› Bug Fixes

    πŸ›  Fixed bug that made QuTiP incompatible with SciPy 1.3.

    quite.cite() is improved.

    βž• Added matplotlib as optional dependency and updated numpy and scipy requirements.

    πŸ›  Fixed matrix generating coherent spin states in qutip.piqs to include complex coefficients.

  • v4.3.1

    July 18, 2018

    πŸš€ The release of QuTiP 4.3.1

    πŸ‘Œ Improvements

    MAJOR FEATURE : Added the Permutational Invariant Quantum Solver (PIQS) module ( by Nathan Shammah and Shahnawaz Ahmed ) which allows the simluation of large TLSs ensembles including collective and local Lindblad dissipation. Applications range from superradiance to spin squeezing.

    MAJOR FEATURE : Added a photon scattering module ( by Ben Bartlett ) which can be used to study scattering in arbitrary driven systems coupled to some configuration of output waveguides.

    Cubic_Spline functions as time-dependent arguments for the collapse operators in mesolve are now allowed.

    Added a faster version of bloch_redfield_tensor, using components from the time-dependent version. About 3x+ faster for secular tensors, and 10x+ faster for non-secular tensors.

    Computing Q.overlap() [inner product] is now ~30x faster.

    βž• Added projector method to Qobj class.

    βž• Added fast projector method, Q.proj().

    Computing matrix elements, Q.matrix_element is now ~10x faster.

    Computing expectation values for ket vectors using expect is now ~10x faster. is now faster for small Hilbert space dimensions.

    Unitary operator evolution added to sesolve

    πŸ‘‰ Use OPENMP for tidyup if installed.

    πŸ› Bug Fixes

    πŸ›  Fixed bug that stopped simdiag working for python 3.

    πŸ›  Fixed semidefinite cvxpy Variable and Parameter.

    πŸ›  Fixed iterative lu solve atol keyword issue.

    πŸ›  Fixed unitary op evolution rhs matrix in ssesolve.

    πŸ›  Fixed interpolating function to return zero outside range.

    πŸ›  Fixed dnorm complex casting bug.

    πŸ›  Fixed path checking issue.

    πŸ›  Fixed ENR fock dimension.

    πŸ›  Fixed hard coded options in propagator 'batch' mode

    πŸ›  Fixed bug in trace-norm for non-Hermitian operators.

    Fixed bug related to args not being passed to coherence_function_g2

    πŸ›  Fixed MKL error checking dict key error

    πŸš€ Release of QuTiP 4.2.

    πŸ‘Œ Improvements

    • MAJOR FEATURE: Initial implementation of time-dependent Bloch-Redfield Solver.
