QuTiP Package

These pages are the developers’ guide to the main QuTiP package code base. The source code is available in the GitHub repository qutip/qutip, which is the primary location for filing issues and making pull requests. Please read these pages to help you understand how the qutip package is organised and how the code works.

In general we assume that you have a working knowledge of using QuTiP as a user, and these pages will not contain a tutorial on how to work with the library. If that is what you are looking for, please refer to the user guide or the large collection of example notebooks.

This developers’ guide is intended for people who are looking to modify and extend QuTiP, particularly the lower-level, more heavily optimised components.
