Local operations, topological order and fault-tolerant quantum computation


Héctor Bombín (Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, Kyoto University)


In quantum information theory the locality of quantum operations plays an important role in the definition of entanglement. Similarly, in condensed matter theory locality plays a crucial role in defining topologically ordered phases. Finally, locality is also fundamental in the context of fault-tolerant quantum computation. In this talk I will explore the power of local operations at the crossover of topological order and fault-tolerance.
