So far I have read a little bit about zx-calculus & y-calculus.
From Reversible Computation:
The zx-calculus is a graphical language for describing quantum systems.
The zx-calculus is an equational theory, based on rewriting the diagrams which comprise its syntax. Re-writing can be automated by means of the quantomatic software.
This method seems very interesting, however I am not able to find much introductory information on the subject. Any insight into the subject or additional resources would be greatly appreciated.
