Symbolic Framework for Quantum Computation in Sympy

by Addison Cugini for Portland State University

Quantum computation is an exciting new field that promises to turn many hard problems into computationally practical ones. Sympy is a powerful symbolic library for python that produces highly human-readable code. Using the symbolic framework of Sympy, I plan on creating a set of libraries that will symbolically simulate a quantum computer in a notationally clear way.
