Title: Pictorial language in quantum computation

Abstract: Quantum circuit is the standard and powerful tool to describe the process of quantum computation. It is important to simplify or to classically simulate quantum circuits. Here we report the recent progress on the representation of quantum circuit using a pictorial language called Quon language. This gives a new topological complexity to understand quantum computing.
