Q-FARM Quantum Seminar Series presents "Restrictions on logical gates in quantum error correction"

Restrictions on logical gates in quantum error correction

Abstract / Description: 

The disjointness for stabilizer codes in quantum error correction is an algebraic quantity tied to the structure of the stabilizer generators of a code. It can be used to characterize the properties of different classes of logical gates, placing bounds on the level of the Clifford hierarchy attainable by constant depth circuits. This talk will introduce the notion of disjointness, highlight its usefulness with several examples, and posit open questions for which the disjointness may be useful in addressing.
