A code whose codewords make up the ground-state space of a fracton-phase Hamiltonian.
- Topological code — Fracton phases can be understood as topological defect networks, meaning that they can be described in the language of topological quantum field theory .
- Translationally-invariant stabilizer code — Translationally-invariant stabilizer codes can realize fracton orders. Conversely, fracton codes need not be translationally invariant, and can realize multiple phases on one lattice.
- XZZX surface code — Subsystem symmetries play a role in finite-bias decoders for both codes .
