# CSE 599d Lecture Notes 13,14 and 15

Hindsight I taught things a bit out of order. What I should have done was do entanglement after Grover’s algorithm. Then it would have been nice to have a lecture on quantum communication complexity, but seeing as how things are rapidly heading towards the end (four more lectures to go) and I want to get to the threshold for fault-tolerant quantum computing I decided not to keep this. So the next lectures will introduce quantum error correction, deduce the quantum error correcting criteria, discuss classical linear and then CSS codes, discuss stabilizer codes, and then more on to fault-tolerant constructions. We might just make it.

Dave, your note on ‘mixed state and open quantum system’ seems missing here, so the 15th note on ‘why qc fall apart’ doesn’t show up in this page.

2. Doh! Thanks for point that out. Hope the notes have been entertaining. I’m writing more write now. Mmm…good coffee.
