An introduction to quantum error correction (QEC) is given, and some recent developments are described. QEC consists of two parts: the physics of error processes and their reversal, and the construction of quantum error–correcting codes. Errors are caused both by imperfect quantum operations, and by coupling between the quantum system and its environment. Any such process can be analysed into a sum of ‘error operators’, which are tensor products of Pauli spin operators. These are the analogues… Expand
