## Quantum Error Correction: Tutorial

The "friendly introduction" is web-based,
most of the rest is in the form of downloadable pdf files, with some powerpoint presentations.

3 lectures on quantum error correction.
This is a pdf file containing visual material for a set of 3 lectures introducing quantum
error correction. It could be used in conjunction with the above tutorial article.

- Single-lecture introduction for a more
mathematical audience: combined ppt and pdf.
This goes faster (covering classical coding theory in 6 slides). Start with the
ppt then go to the pdf file.
3 bit QEC example.[Warning: large file, 2 Mbyte].
The first (3 bit) example in the tutorial is worked through in this (web-converted)
powerpoint presentation (very basic level, final year undergraduate or early graduate).

QEC, stabilizers and code construction.[Warning:
large file, 1.7 Mbyte]. This is a brief powerpoint presentation of QEC ideas at a more advanced level. It can
also be used in conjunction with the above. (graduate level).

Fault tolerance.[Warning: large file, 5.7 Mbyte].
This is a powerpoint presentation of the main ideas of fault-tolerance. (graduate level).
