Random quantum code
Quantum code whose construction is non-deterministic in some way, i.e., codes that utilize an elements of randomness somewhere in their construction. Members of this class range from fully non-deterministic codes (e.g., random-circuit codes), to codes whose multi-step construction is deterministic with the exception of a single step (e.g., expander lifter-product codes).
- Random code
- Covariant code — Random \(U(d)\)-covariant almost exactly error-correcting codes exist .
- Calderbank-Shor-Steane (CSS) stabilizer code — Random CSS codes asymptotically achieve linear distance with high probability, achieving the quantum Gilbert-Varshamov bound .
- Fiber-bundle code
- Homological product code — Random homological codes are asymptotically good with high probability [4; Thm. 1].
- Clifford-deformed surface code (CDSC) — Many useful CDSCs are constructed using random Clifford circuits.
