Efficient fault-tolerant quantum computing

Abstract:

Quantum computing - the processing of information according to the fundamental laws of physics - offers a means to solve efficiently a small but significant set of classically intractable problems. Quantum computers are based on the controlled manipulation of entangled quantum states, which are extremely sensitive to noise and imprecision; active correction of errors must therefore be implemented without causing loss of coherence. Quantum error-correction theory has made great progress in thi...
