On a classical computer, I want to simulate a learning-based quantum state tomography of a qubit. We can formulate it as finding a parametrized unitary evolution that takes the unknown pure state to a known state. We measure on the basis of the known state (see 1). If we get the known state we proceed, otherwise we change the parameter of the unitary evolution slightly, until we obtain a large number of projections to the known state successfully. There are a lot of simulators listed in quantiki website and also in some previous posts here. Does anyone know a simple simulator to do that?
To me the best choice is clearly qutip, a quantum computing simulator based in Python. It's free, and it has good documentation.
Let us know if you have any other queries beyond asking which simulator could do the job best.
