Manipulate quantum many-body operators

# Opyrators

Opyrators is a lightweight python package that represents many-body fermion- and spin-operators as strings.

For example, the fermionic string "012003" stands for a 6-site operator formed by a creation operator on site 2, an annihilation operator on site 3, a density operator on site 6 and identity operators on the rest. See the encodings below.

In this representation, operator manipulations such as addition and multiplication are easily implemented. Super useful if you want to quickly compute commutators (and/or use this for research projects). See the example below.

## Installation

pip install opyrators


## Example

Here is a quick example showing some of the basic features of fermionic opyrators.

# Import the fermion operators.
from fermions import operator

# The operator takes a dictionary as input, with its key-value pairs being
# the operator string and its coefficient.
A = operator({"112233":1.3})
B = operator({"221133":0.34})
C = A * B - B * A

# The output of the print operation shows that this complex
# operator consists of 6 terms, but is fully diagonal.
print(C)
# Term 0: 330033 0.442
# Term 1: 330333 -0.442
# Term 2: 333033 -0.442
# Term 3: 003333 -0.442
# Term 4: 033333 0.442
# Term 5: 303333 0.442

# As another example, here is an operator describing the hopping terms on a
# 3-site periodic lattice.
J = operator({"120":1, "012":1, "201":1})
J = J + J.conj()


## Encodings

### Fermions

For particles, the encoding works as follows:

• 0 = Identity operator
• 1 = Creation operator
• 2 = Annihilation operator
• 3 = Density operator

### Spins

For spin-1/2 operators, the encoding works as follows:

• 0 = Identity operator
• 1 = Pauli-X operator
• 2 = Pauli-Y operator
• 3 = Pauli-Z operator

An operator with X on site 2, Y on site 4 and Z on site 5, in a system of 8 sites, hence would be "01023000".
