Abstract

We use a graphical representation of stabilizer states to describe, simply and efficiently, the effect of measurements of Pauli products on stabilizer states. This work complements our earlier work [Phys. Rev. A 77, 042307 (2008)], which described in graphical terms the action of Clifford operations on stabilizer states.
