Does the new version supersede the previous version?: Yes
Nature of problem:
Dynamics of open quantum systems
Numerical solutions to Lindblad, Floquet-Markov, and Bloch-Redfield master equations, as well as the Monte Carlo wave function method.
Reasons for new version:
Compared to the preceding version we have introduced numerous new features, enhanced performance, made changes in the Application Programming Interface (API) for improved functionality and consistency within the package, as well as increased compatibility with existing conventions used in other scientific software packages for Python. The most significant new features include efficient solvers for arbitrary time-dependent Hamiltonians and collapse operators, support for the Floquet formalism, and new solvers for Bloch-Redfield and Floquet-Markov master equations.
Problems must meet the criteria for using the master equation in Lindblad, Floquet-Markov, or Bloch-Redfield form.
A few seconds up to several tens of hours, depending on size of the underlying Hilbert space.
