dynamite: fast numerics for quantum spin chains¶
Welcome to dynamite, which provides a simple interface to fast evolution of quantum dynamics and eigensolving. Behind the scenes, dynamite uses the PETSc/SLEPc implementations of Krylov subspace exponentiation and eigensolving.
To run the tutorial, install Docker (or any software that can run docker containers), and run

dynamite is in beta! You may find bugs. When you do, please submit them on the GitHub Issues page! Additionally, you may want to check you are getting correct answers by comparing a small system to output from a different method.
How to cite¶
Currently, the best way to cite dynamite is by citing the Zenodo repository. A manuscript is coming soon!

- Running dynamite from a container
- Installing from source
- How do I run my code in parallel?
- I increased the number of MPI ranks but my computation didn’t get faster!
- My computation is using too much memory.
- I got an error message about an integer overflow even though I’m running with fewer than 32 spins.
- I am tired of setting the spin chain length L everywhere.
- My code is having mysterious problems/giving wrong answers when I run with more than 1 MPI rank.
- I want to get under the hood and fiddle with PETSc and SLEPc.
