The ZX-calculus allows us to represent any quantum computation graphically (as a so-called ZX diagram) and provides rewrite rules for finding other diagrams which implement the same linear map. Not all ZX diagrams correspond to maps that can be deterministically implemented on real hardware – in this talk we shall briefly introduce the ZX-calculus, conditions which can determine whether ZX-diagrams can be deterministically implemented, as well as introduce some rules we have proved to preserve the aforementioned determinism conditions.
