**Module name:** :mod:`thewalrus.reference`

.. currentmodule:: thewalrus.reference

This submodule provides access to reference implementations of the
hafnian and loop hafnian by summing over the set of perfect matching permutations
or the set of single pair matchings.

For more details on these definitions see:

  complex matrices and its benchmarking on the Titan supercomputer"
