# Multiple-particle interference and quantum error correction

@article{Steane1996MultipleparticleIA, title={Multiple-particle interference and quantum error correction}, author={A. Steane}, journal={Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences}, year={1996}, volume={452}, pages={2551 - 2577} }

The concept of multiple-particle interference is discussed, using insights provided by the classical theory of error correcting codes. This leads to a discussion of error correction in a quantum communication channel or a quantum computer. Methods of error correction in the quantum regime are presented, and their limitations assessed. A quantum channel can recover from arbitrary decoherence of x qubits if K bits of quantum information are encoded using n quantum bits, where K /n can be greater… Expand

An analysis which allows even the corrective operations themselves to be imperfect leads to powerful and counter–intuitive results: the quantum coherence of a long quantum computation can be preserved even though every qubit in the computer relaxes spontaneously many times before the computation is complete.
