Extending quantum probabilistic error cancellation by noise scaling
We propose a general framework for quantum error mitigation that combines and generalizes two techniques: probabilistic error cancellation (PEC) and zero-noise extrapolation (ZNE). Similarly to PEC,Expand
Quantum Error Mitigation Relying on Permutation Filtering
This treatise shows that the proposed filter design algorithm always converge to the global optimum, and that the optimal filters can provide substantial improvements over the existing permutation-based methods in the presence of narrowband quantum noise, corresponding to large-depth, high-error-rate quantum circuits.

Quantum error mitigation is expected to play a crucial role in the practical applications of quantum machines for the foreseeable future. Thus it is important to put the numerous quantum errorExpand
Can Error Mitigation Improve Trainability of Noisy Variational Quantum Algorithms?
This work shows that, for a broad class of EM strategies, exponential cost concentration cannot be resolved without committing exponential resources elsewhere, and finds numerical evidence that Clifford Data Regression (CDR) can aid the training process in certain settings where cost concentration is not too severe.
