# Matching code[1]

## Description

Member of a class of qubit stabilizer codes based on the abelian phase of the Kitaev honeycomb model.

## Realizations

Braiding of defects has been demonstrated for a five-qubit version of code [2].

## Parents

- Qubit stabilizer code
- Abelian topological code — Matching codes were inspired by the \(\mathbb{Z}_2\) topological order phase of the Kitaev honeycomb model [3].
