This is the official demo(https://nbviewer.ipython.org/github/qutip/qutip-notebooks/blob/master/examples/visualization-exposition.ipynb). But after I run it, there is no error, but I can't output the graph of the Bloch sphere. This does not match the case. In addition, use display(b.b.make_sphere()) to return None. Something magical happened, what a beautiful day.

%matplotlib inline
import pandas as pd
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np
from qutip import *

H = sigmaz() + 0.3 * sigmay()
e_ops = [sigmax(), sigmay(), sigmaz()]
times = np.linspace(0, 10, 100)
psi0 = (basis(2, 0) + basis(2, 1)).unit()
result = mesolve(H, psi0, times, [], e_ops)
b = Bloch()
b.add_vectors(expect(H.unit(), e_ops))
b.add_points(result.expect, meth='l')

my output:

you need to add b.show() to show the bloch
,maybe %matplotlib inline not working, you can try %matplotlib nbagg or %matplotlib notebook
read more about show: https://matplotlib.org/stable/api/_as_gen/matplotlib.pyplot.show.html
