Error Correction

  • Wolfgang Scherer


After a brief review of classical error correction the notion of quantum error and recovery operators is introduced. Two theorems providing necessary and sufficient conditions for an error to be correctable are proven. This is illustrated with several examples before the stabilizer formalism for quantum error correction is presented in detail.
