Due to their compactness, robustness, and conciseness, Lindenmayer systems (L-systems) have served as a popular tool for modeling numerous types of systems. Quantum systems, algorithms, and processes maintain a certain regularity to which L-systems are proficient at modeling. In this thesis we explore how one may formulate L-systems in terms of quantum computational areas and the benefits incurred from doing so. This new approach is oriented toward a further extension in the field of L-systems, allowing us to model behavior of quantum computational aspect and more expressively describe quantum processes and phenomena. A particular implementation strategy of how one may invoke an L-system to model these constituents are presented and evaluated.
