The mixed qutrit state density matrix is of order 3 and depends on eight parameters. Visualization of this 8-D state space is practically impossible using 8-D vectors commonly used in the standard approach. Recently a 3-D vector representation of the qutrit state space also called invariant vector representation, or IVR has been proposed. In this report, we present temporal dynamics and the visualization of the mixed qutrit in cascade configuration.
