Lei Wang Quantum Error Correction and Spin Glass Physics 4/14/2019

I will start by introducing the concept of quantum error correction with a toy problem. Next, I will reveal the connection between the toric code and random-bond Ising model and establish its error threshold using the model's phase diagram. Finally, I will discuss efficient error correction schemes based on graph theory, Monte Carlo method, tensor networks, and machine learning approaches.
