I am trying to get


from (https://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/MathSource/5715/), however, it failed and I get this error:

Get::noopen: Cannot open LinearAlgebra`MatrixManipulation`.  
Needs::nocont: Context LinearAlgebra`MatrixManipulation` was not created when Needs was evaluated.
Type "?intro", "?QDENSITY\`Qdensity\`*" or "?about for help.  
SetDelayed::write: Tag TensorProduct in x_?MatrixQ [TensorProduct]y_?MatrixQ is Protected.  
SetDelayed::write: Tag Entropy in Entropy[O_?MatrixQ] is Protected.

Is there any solution to this problem? I am just a beginner using Mathematica.

  • $\begingroup$ The package you're using appears to be based on an old version of Mathematica. The functions in the LinearAlgebra package were probably incorporated into the current version at some point, and the package removed. You could either try to find an old version of the LinearAlgebra package on the web, install/load it, or examine the code and rewrite it to use the current functions. It's likely that the authors stopped supporting it at some point, so you're pretty much on your own. An alternative is to look for another package. The MathSource description suggests this package is used for $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ ...quantum computing. If that's what you're looking for, you might consider the Wolfram Quantum Framework, which is available on their paclet repository site. It's authors are Wolfram employees, and it's up to date and likely to be supported for the foreseeable future. $\endgroup$
