The circuits produced by reversible and quantum synthesis approaches are not often optimal and post synthesis optimizations are beneficial. This paper introduces a functional approach for the optimization of reversible and quantum circuits that uses a recently introduced structure for semi-classical quantum circuits called Decision Diagram for a Matrix Function (DDMF). Experimental results are given that show that using DDMFs leads to more optimizations than are found using existing approaches. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
