Meeting 10.2: Topological quantum computing I

Continuing to follow Kitaev, we consider the toric code as the ground state space of a Hamiltonian constructed from the vertex and plaquette operators. The other eigenspaces of this Hamiltonian are…

Meeting 9.2: Toric code II and stabilizer formalism

I finish up calculating the distance of the toric code. I then introduce the stabilizer formalism, which provides a method to construct quantum error correcting codes from classical Boolean linear…
