Abstract: It is known that monitoring quantum systems can induce an entanglement phase transition. To better understand this physics, we study the entanglement dynamics in a generic quantum automaton circuit subjected to projective measurements. We show that the entanglement phase transition in this model belongs to the directed percolation universality class by analyzing the underlying bitstring dynamics. We also give an interpretation of our model in terms of  quantum/classical error correction.
