Quantum computers QCs must implement quantum error correcting codes QECCs to protect their logical qubits from errors, and modeling the effectiveness of QECCs on QCs is an important problem for evaluating the QC architecture. The previously developed Monte Carlo MC error models may take days or weeks of execution to produce an accurate result due to their random sampling approach. We present an alternative deterministic error model that generates, over the course of executing the quantum…

Quantum recovery protocols for stabilizer codes: Deterministic Monte-Carlo simulation

The Monte-Carlo sampling simulation method is used to determine the survival probabilities for these codes under evolving error rates and a hypothetical q-step quantum algorithm is stabilized by the repeated application of the recovery protocol, and the proposed estimation method is applied.

Practical fault tolerance for quantum circuits

A linear programming-based optimization for error correction is developed which decreases overall circuit resources by an order of magnitude and actually improves overall system reliability by removing error correction.

Two phase simulation-based assessment of quantum error correction codes

A VHDL-based simulation technique for studying the effects of noise on fault tolerant quantum circuits using fault injection, based on a two-phase simulation for assessing fault tolerance, which yields a good approximation for noise values lower than 10−2.

Quantum noise simulation: A software module for QuCirDET

An autonomous software module for the estimation of quantum circuit noise is preseneted and the adopted module is integrated into QuCirDET maintaining its independence from the interface.

Basic Theory of Superconductivity in Metals Without Inversion Center
