Guided Research Project – Optimizing Quantum Circuits using Diagrammatic Calculi

After completing a foundational university course on the topic, I immediately started out on building my own quantum state vector simulator. As part of a seminar, this personal project eventually evolved into an interactive application for visualizing the ZX-Calculus, a generalized, alternate representation for quantum circuits.

I then chose to do a guided research project on leveraging this diagrammatic notation to automatically optimize the underlying quantum circuits. More details can be found here soon.
