# Two-dimensional hyperbolic surface code[1]

## Description

Hyperbolic surface codes based on a tessellation of a closed 2D manifold with a hyperbolic geometry (i.e., non-Euclidean geometry, e.g., saddle surfaces when defined on a 2D plane).

For a tessellation involving regular polygons with \( r \) sides and \( s \) polygons meeting at each edge, the number of logical qubits is given by \( k = (1-2/r - 2/s) n + 2 \). Some possible tilings are \( \{r,s\}: \{7,3\}, \{5,4\} \). The weight of the stabilizer generators are dependent on the tiling, with \(\{5,4\}\) having lower weight than \(\{7,3\}\).

A semi-hyperbolic surface code [2] is a code defined on a \(\{4,s\}\) tiling, but where each square is replaced with a square region of a 2D lattice.
