Quantum Optics Maple Toolbox

These are modules and worksheets for the Quantavo Toolbox, designed to ease certain calculations in Quantum Optics and Quantum Information. For more details visit http://arxiv.org/abs/0806.2171


1) If you download the file " Quantavo.mpl" and save it as


Then open a Maple worksheet and execute,

read "/my-directory/Quantavo.mpl"; with(Quantavo);

That should display all the available procedures. That's it!

2) If you download the file " Quantavo.zip", then Uncompress its content to a given directory,


open a Maple worksheet and execute,

read "/my-directory/QUANTAVO/Quantavo.mpl"; with(Quantavo);

You may also execute the file " Quantavo_Example_Worksheet.mw" to find some examples.

(for windows use double slash, > read "C:\my-directory\QUANTAVO\Quantavo.mpl";)


Declare States in the Fock basis and let them evolve with an arbitrary unitary transformation of the modes: Example 1

Plot and display density matrices and pure quantum states: Example 2

Evaluate and plot the Negativity (Entanglement Measure) for different states: Example 2
