Installing ITensor

Installing the Julia version of ITensor is easy once you have the Julia language installed. For more information about installing Julia, please see the Julia language downloads page.

Once you have installed Julia on your machine,

  1. launch an interactive Julia session by typing julia (a.k.a. the Julia "REPL")
  2. type ] to enter the package manager (pkg> prompt should now show)
  3. enter the command add ITensors
  4. after installation completes, press backspace to return to the normal julia> prompt
