LO_v-Calculus: A Graphical Language for Linear Optical Quantum Circuits

pdf-format:


Abstract

We introduce the LO_v-calculus, a graphical language for reasoning about linear optical quantum circuits with so-called vacuum state auxiliary inputs. We present the axiomatics of the language and prove its soundness and completeness: two LO_v-circuits represent the same quantum process if and only if one can be transformed into the other with the rules of the LO_v-calculus. We give a confluent and terminating rewrite system to rewrite any polarisation-preserving LO_v-circuit into a unique triangular normal form, inspired by the universal decomposition of Reck et al. (1994) for linear optical quantum circuits.
