QCircuits is a Python package for the simulation and study of quantum computers based on the quantum circuit model. It has been designed to have a simple, lightweight interface and to be easy to use, particularly for those new to quantum computing.
Install with pip:
pip install qcircuits
or from the source available here.
Example usage: quantum teleportation
