Advanced Topics in Theory of Computing; Quantum Error Correction and Fault-Tolerance (CMSC858G, Fall 2021)

The aim of the course is to develop the theory of how to protect quantum computers from noise through active control, measurement, and feedback of quantum systems. Topics will include quantum coding theory, stabilizer codes, continuous variable codes, fault-tolerance, resource theories, magic states, threshold theorems, topological codes, decoding algorithms, noisy quantum circuits, and related aspects of quantum many-body physics.
