Quantum Pin Codes
Wednesday February 26, 2020

The series of talks in quantum computing continues with CNRS candidates at home. This time we will listen to  Christophe Vuillot.


We introduce quantum pin codes: a class of quantum CSS codes. Quantum pin codes are a vast generalization of quantum color codes and Reed-Muller codes. A lot of the structure and properties of color codes carries over to pin codes. Pin codes have gauge operators, an unfolding procedure and their stabilizers form multi-orthogonal spaces. This last feature makes them interesting for devising magic-state distillation protocols. We study examples of these codes and their properties. (https://arxiv.org/abs/1906.11394)
