The original paper which proves the Gottesman-Knill theorem. The TQC interpretation should be something like "you can efficiently simulate Clifford gates with by tracking states in a quasiparticle basis", but I don't know exactly yet...
The proof of the Gottesman-Knill theorem is attributed to Knill, and is thus presented in this work as "Knill's theorem".
