HiPerWalk: High-performance Quantum Walk Simulator

HiPerWalk is a freeware open-source program that allows the user to perform simulations of quantum walks on graphs using HPC. The user can use the parallel resources of the computer, such as accelerator cards, multicore CPU and GPGPU to speedup the overall process without knowing parallel programming. It is under development and employs Python, OpenCL, Neblina, and Gnuplot languages.
