libquantum is a C library for the simulation of a quantum computer. Based on
the principles of quantum mechanics, it provides an implementation of a
quantum register. Basic operations for register manipulation such as the
Hadamard gate or the Controlled-NOT gate are available through an easy-to-use
interface. Measurements can be performed on either single qubits or the whole
quantum register.
* Simulation of arbitrary quantum algorithms is possible
* High perfomance and low memory consumption
* Decoherence support for realistic quantum computation
* Interface for quantum error correction (QEC)
* Supports the density operator formalism
* Implementations of Shor's factoring algorithm and Grover's search
algorithm are included
This package contains the header files and static libraries which are needed
to develop applications based on libquantum.

[ Boris Pek ]
* QA upload.
* Updated Vcs-* fields in debian/control.
* Package was switched to source format 3.0 (quilt).
* Added build dependency from autotools-dev.
* Bumped Standards-Version to 3.9.3.
