#' The qstate class
#'
#' This class represents a quantum state
#'
#' @slot nbits The number of qubits
#' @slot coefs The 2^nbits complex valued vector of coefficients
#' @slot basis String or vector of strings. A single string will be interpreted 
#' as the \code{collapse}-parameter in \code{genComputationalBasis}. A vector 
#' of length 2^nbits yields the basis directly.
#' @slot circuit List containing the number of non-quantum bits \code{ncbits}
#' and a list of gates \code{gatelist} applied to the original state.
#' Filled automatically as gates are applied, required for plotting.
#'
#' @details
#' The qubits are counted from 1 to \code{nbits} starting with the least
#' significant bit.
