This release adds a few new features to the pulse-level simulator.
PRs are collected https://github.com/qutip/qutip-qip/milestone/3?closed=1.
Separate the gate definition from the QubitCircuit.propagators method (#83)
Support different pulse shapes. (#85)
Use autosummary to generate a summary of API docs. (#103)
Improve the scheduling algorithm. (#105)
Compatibility Note: The behaviour of
Processor.pulses changes significantly from version 0.1 to version 0.2. In 0.1, if no control coefficients are added, pulses contains a list of partially initialized
Pulse objects. They include control Hamiltonians but have no coefficients or tlist. This behaviour has changed. From 0.2, the list only includes controls that have non-trivial dynamics. To inspect the available control Hamiltonians, please use
Version 0.1.2 (Nov 25, 2021)¶

Version 0.1.1 (July 28, 2021)¶
PRs are collected here.
Improve the documentation.
The part of tex code taken from circuit is removed due to licence issue. Instead, the latex code now requires the user to install qcircuit in advance. (#61)
Add more thorough documentation for installing external dependencies for circuit plotting. (#65)
Version 0.1.0 (May 14, 2021)¶
This is the first release of qutip-qip, the Quantum Information Processing package in QuTiP.
The qutip-qip package used to be a module
qutip.qip under QuTiP (Quantum Toolbox in Python). From QuTiP 5.0, the community has decided to decrease the size of the core QuTiP package by reducing the external dependencies, in order to simplify maintenance. Hence a few modules are separated from the core QuTiP and will become QuTiP family packages. They are still maintained by the QuTiP team but hosted under different repositories in the QuTiP organization.
The qutip-qip package, QuTiP quantum information processing, aims at providing basic tools for quantum computing simulation both for simple quantum algorithm design and for experimental realization. Compared to other libraries for quantum information processing, qutip-qip puts additional emphasis on the physics layer and the interaction with the QuTiP package. The package offers two different approaches for simulating quantum circuits, one with
QubitCircuit calculating unitary evolution under quantum gates by matrix product, another called
Processor using open system solvers in QuTiP to simulate the execution of quantum circuits on a noisy quantum device.
