Clifford circuits over non-cyclic abelian groups

We present a discussion of the generalized Clifford group over non-cyclic finite abelian groups. These Clifford groups appear naturally in the theory of topological error correction and abelian anyon models. We demonstrate a generalized Gottesman-Knill theorem, stating that every Clifford circuit can be efficiently classically simulated. We additionally provide circuits for a universal quantum computing scheme based on local two-qudit Clifford gates and magic states.
