On Connections Between Graphs, Codes, Quantum States, and Boolean Functions
Lars Eirik Danielsen: On Connections Between Graphs, Codes, Quantum States, and Boolean Functions. PhD thesis, Deptartment of Informatics, University of Bergen, Norway, May 2008. We study objects that can be represented as graphs, error-correcting codes, quantum states, or Boolean functions. It is known that self-dual additive codes, which can also be interpreted as quantum states, can be represented as graphs, and that two codes are equivalent when the corresponding graphs are equivalent with respect to local complementation (LC). We give classifications of such codes.
