This project investigates the discrete Wigner function for systems of qubits following Wootters's recent work. The general formalism is developed for n qubits and applied to systems of one and two qubits. Among the applications considered are: implementation of rotations and gates on 1- and 2-qubit systems and state reconstruction through quantum tomography. We discover that crossing two 1-qubit DWFs to form one 2-qubit DWF requires the use of different quantum nets. We also investigate reduction of the 2-qubit DWF.
