# Credits¶

Most of EQTK was written by Justin Bois. This project began in the laboratory of Niles Pierce and Caltech. Brian Wolfe was a key collaborator in early development. Some of the code base, particularly linear algebra routines and portions of the test suite, is a refactoring of code written by Brian. Michaelangelo Lucas also contributed some code that was refactored. Mark Fornace, Nick Porubsky, and Grant Roy all provided valuable advice and discussion.

# Citing EQTK¶

A publication about EQTK and its algorithms is forthcoming.

In the meantime, you can cite the paper where the basis of the core algorithm first appeared, https://doi.org/10.1137/060651100.
