Algebraic Effects, Linearity, and Quantum Programming Languages

  title={Algebraic Effects, Linearity, and Quantum Programming Languages},
  author={Sam Staton},
We develop a new framework of algebraic theories with linear parameters, and use it to analyze the equational reasoning principles of quantum computing and quantum programming languages. We use the framework as follows: we present a new elementary algebraic theory of quantum computation, built from unitary gates and measurement; we provide a completeness… CONTINUE READING
