Description

Quantum Algebra is a package to perform Quantum Calculations using non commutative algebra. For this purpose we added Dirac notations for Bras, Kets, Brakets, and Commutators, were implemented together with proper definitions to perform non commutative "products" with them. The motivation for building this package was to perform long calculations that appear in Quantum Optics and Quantum theory.

The basic ideas to build the package were inspired by Quantum Methods with Mathematica by J. Feagin and Creating New Notations in Mathematica by Jason Harris.

This notebook was updated by the author in April 2004. A Tutorial notebook, QATutorial.nb, was added by the Author in July 2004.
