Project description


Unitary Fund PyPi Version

In development, use with discretion.

A Stochastic Quantum Walk simulator based on QuTiP.



The implementation of the walker class is contained in sqwalk/

The tutorials folder contains some tutorial notebooks to familiarize yourself with this package and review the principal features.

SQWalk can be easily incorporated in any existing pipeline with any custom topology or network class, provided with the adjacency matrix. It can deal both with Continuous-Time (ref) and Discrete-Time (or Coined) (ref) Quantum Walks, usage examples for both classes can be found in the tutorials.


The package is avaiable on PyPi, it can be installed by running

python3 -m pip install sqwalk

If one wants to build it from here using setuptools, clone this repository and install the package by running

python3 -m pip install .

inside the directory.

The package and its dependencies are tested to run on Python 3.8, we recommend installing the package inside a conda env or a virtualenv to avoid conflicting dependencies.

To discuss any questions you are welcomed to open an issue or to cantact the author.
