A Holographic Quantum Code

Grant Elliot


Abstract: It was shown by [2] how bulk operators in the AdS/CFT correspondence can be represented on the boundary analogously to the way logical qubits are represented in an encoded subspace in quantum error correction. Then in [1]  holographic tensor networks that serve as toy models of the bulk boundary. This paper reviews some of the developments of [1] and [2]. Then it is demonstrated explicitly how to construct perfect tensors, which are essential to the tensor networks mentioned in [2]. Lastly a new example of a holographic quantum error-correcting code based on an eight index perfect tensor is presented.
