Fault Tolerance and Holography

QuICS Special Seminar

Ning Bao (Brookhaven National Laboratory)
Wednesday, February 2, 2022 - 11:00am
ATL 3100A and Virtual Via Zoom

In this talk I will study the extension of fault tolerance techniques to holographic quantum error correcting codes in the context of the ads/cft correspondence. I will seek to argue that the threshold here corresponds to that of the confinement/de confinement phase transition here, analogously to the situation in topological quantum error correcting codes based on Tqft’s.
