Holographic error correcting codes are quantum error correcting codes that are inspired by the AdS/CFT correspondence in high energy physics.  And one question we may ask for these (or indeed for any quantum error correcting code), is how do we best decode?  (Decoding means figuring out what correction to do when an error has occurred.)  In this talk, we will see that for holographic codes, we can use tensor networks to decode holographic codes efficiently.  Then by simulating errors and applying this decoder, we will see that some of these codes perform quite well against a commonly studied noise model: depolarizing noise.

About Physics Seminars

The weekly Physics Seminar series focuses on a broad range of physics research within SMP, along with frequent presentations from visiting researchers. Seminars are usually scheduled for 1.00pm on Tuesdays.

The talks are typically more specialised than a colloquium but are often attended by staff and PhD students across a broad range of areas. Speakers are thus encouraged to include introductory material in the talks.

All SMP researchers and HDR students are encouraged to speak. Please email Lewis Williamson to register your interest.

The seminars are open so there is no need to register your attendance.
