Here is a list of all classical and quantum codes that have notable decoders.
Name Decoder(s)
Alternant code Guruswami-Sudan list decoder [1].
Analog stabilizer code Homodyne measurement of nullifiers yields real-valued syndromes, and recovery can be performed by displacements conditional on the syndromes.
Approximate quantum error-correcting code (AQECC) Given an encoding, a decoder that yields the optimal entanglement fidelity can be obtained by solving a semi-definite program [2][3] (see also Ref. [4]).The Petz recovery map (a.k.a. the transpose map) [5][6], a quantum channel determined by the codespace and noise channel, recovers information perfectly for strictly correctable noise and yields an infidelity of recovery that is at most twice away from the infidelity of the best possible recovery [7]. The infidelity of a modified Petz recovery map can be bounded using relative entropies between uncorrupted and corrupted code states on countably infinite Hilbert spaces [8].
Approximate secret-sharing code Decoding is analagous to reconstruction in a secret sharing scheme and is done in polynomial time. The only required operations are verification of quantum authentication, which is a pair of polynomial-time quantum algorithms that check if the fidelity of the received state is close to 1, and erasure correction for a stabilizer code, which involves solving a system of linear equations.
Bacon-Shor code While check operators are few-body, stabilizer weights scale with the number of qubits, and stabilizer expectation values are obtained by taking products of gauge-operator expectation values. It is thus not clear how to extract stabilizer values in a fault-tolerant manner [9][10].
Balanced code Efficient decoder [11][12][13].
Balanced product code BP-OSD decoder [14].
Binary BCH code Peterson decoder with runtime of order \(O(n^3)\) [15][16] (see exposition in Ref. [17]).Berlekamp-Massey decoder with runtime of order \(O(n^2)\) [18][19] and modification by Burton [20]; see also [21][22].Sugiyama et al. modification of the extended Euclidean algorithm [23][24].Guruswami-Sudan list decoder [1].
Binary Varshamov-Tenengolts (VT) code Decoder based on checksums \(\sum_{i=1}^n i~x_i^{\prime}\) of corrupted codewords \(x_i^{\prime}\) [25][26].
Binary code For few-bit codes (\(n\) is small), decoding can be based on a lookup table. For infinite code families, the size of such a table scales exponentially with \(n\), so approximate decoding algorithms scaling polynomially with \(n\) have to be used. The decoder determining the most likely error given a noise channel is called the maximum-likelihood decoder.Given a received string \(x\) and an error bound \(e\), a list decoder returns a list of all codewords that are at most \(e\) from \(x\) in Hamming distance. The number of codewords in a neighborhood of \(x\) has to be polynomial in \(n\) in order for this decoder to run in time polynomial in \(n\).
Binary quantum Goppa code Farran algorithm [27].
Binomial code Photon loss and dephasing errors can be detected by measuring the phase-space rotation \(\exp\left(2\pi\mathrm{i} \hat{n} / (S+1)\right)\) and the check operator \(J_x/J\) in the spin-coherent state language, where \(J\) is the total angular momentum and \(J_x\) is the angular momentum in the \(x\) direction [28]. This type of error correction fails for errors that are products of photon loss/gain and dephasing errors. However, for certain \((N,S)\) instances of the binomial code, detection of these types of errors can be done.Recovery can be done via projective measurements and unitary operations [29][28].

[17]).Sugiyama et al. modification of the extended Euclidean algorithm [23][24].Guruswami-Sudan list decoder [1] and modification by Koetter-Vardy for soft-decision decoding [32].
Bosonic rotation code One can distinguish (destructively) the codewords by performing a Fock-state number measurement. If a Fock state state \(|n\rangle\) is measured, then one rounds to the nearest integer of the form \((kq+j)/N\), and deduces that the true state was \(|\overline{j}\rangle\).One can distinguish states in the dual basis by performing phase estimation on \(\mathrm{e}^{\mathrm{i} \theta \hat n}\). One then rounds the resulting \(\theta\) to the nearest number \(2\pi j / qN\) in order to determine which dual basis state \(j \in \mathbb Z_q\) it came from.Autonomous quantum error correction schemes for \(S=1\) codes [33].
Braunstein five-mode code Error correction can be done using linear-optical elements and feedback [34].
Calderbank-Shor-Steane (CSS) stabilizer code Coherent decoders allow for measurement-free error correction [35]. One method is table/multi-control decoding [36], which scales exponentially with the number of ancillas used in syndrome measurement. Another method, the Ising-based decoder, utilizes the mapping of the effect of the noise to a statistical mechanical model [37][38] such that the decoding problem maps to preparation of the ground state of an Ising model.
Cat code Measurement in the Fock basis. For a \(2(S+1)\) cat code, a number measurement returns outcome \(2(S+1)k\), if \(k\) is even, then it corresponds to logical 0 state; if \(k\) is odd, then it corresponds to logical 1 state.

Convolutional code Decoders based on the Viterbi algorithm (trellis decoding) were developed first, which result in the most-likely codeword for the encoded bits [47]. Following, other trellis decoders such as the BCJR decoding algorithm [48] were developed later.

Application of several algorthims in parallel can be used to decode up to half the minimum distance [58][59]. Computational procedure implementing these decoders is based on an extension of the Berlekamp-Massey algorithm by Sakata [60][61][62].Decoder based on majority voting of unknown syndromes [63] decodes up to half of the minimum distance [64].List decoders generalizing Sudan's RS decoder by Shokrollahi-Wasserman [65] and Guruswami-Sudan [1].
Expander code Decoding can be done in \(O(n)\) runtime using a greedy flip algorithm. The algorithm consists of flipping a bit of the received word if it will result in a greater number of satisfied parity checks. This is repeated until a codeword is reached.
Expander lifted-product code Linear-time decoder [66].Logarithmic-time subroutine [67].

Finite-dimensional quantum error-correcting code The operation \(\cal{D}\) in the definition of this code is called the decoder. However, the term decoder can sometimes be used for the inverse of an encoder, which does not correct errors.Quantum machine-learning based decoders such as quantum convolutional neural networks [70] and quantum autoencoders [71].
Five-qubit perfect code Combined dynamical decoupling and error correction protocol on individually-controlled qubits with always-on Ising couplings [72].Symmetric decoder correcting all weight-one Pauli errors. The resulting logical error channel after coherent noise has been explicitly derived [73].
Folded RS (FRS) code Guruswami and Rudra [74][75] achieved list-decoding up to \(1-\frac{k}{n}-\epsilon\) fraction of errors using the Parvaresh-Vardy algorithm [76]; see Ref. [77] for a randomized construction.Folded RS codes, concatenated with suitable inner codes, can be efficiently list-decoded up to the Blokh-Zyablov bound [74][78].
Fountain code Invert the fragment generator matrix resulting from the continuous encoding process. If exactly \(K\) packets are received, then the probability of decoding correctly is \(0.289\). Extra packets increase this probability exponentially. The decoding runtime is dominated by the matrix inversion step, which takes order \(O(n^3)\) time.
Frobenius code Adapted from the Berlekamp decoding algorithm for classical BCH codes. There exists a polynomial time quantum algorithm to correct errors of weight at most \(\tau\), where \(\delta=2\tau+1\) is the BCH distance of the code [79].
Gabidulin code Fast decoder based on a transform-domain approach [80].
Galois-field \(q\)-ary code For small \(n\), decoding can be based on a lookup table. For infinite code families, the size of such a table scales exponentially with \(n\), so approximate decoding algorithms scaling polynomially with \(n\) have to be used. The decoder determining the most likely error given a noise channel is called the maximum-likelihood decoder.Given a received string \(x\) and an error bound \(e\), a list decoder returns a list of all codewords that are at most \(e\) from \(x\). The number of codewords in a neighborhood of \(x\) has to be polynomial in \(n\) in order for this decoder to run in time polynomial in \(n\).
Galois-qudit code For few-qudit codes (\(n\) is small), decoding can be based on a lookup table. For infinite code families, the size of such a table scales exponentially with \(n\), so approximate decoding algorithms scaling polynomially with \(n\) have to be used. The decoder determining the most likely error given a noise channel is called the maximum-likelihood decoder.
Galois-qudit non-stabilizer code The decoding circuit involves the application of phase estimation.
Generalized RS (GRS) code The decoding process of GRS codes reduces to the solution of a polynomial congruence equation, usually referred to as the key equation. Decoding schemes are based on applications of the Euclid algorithm to solve the key equation.Berlekamp-Massey decoder with runtime of order \(O(n^2)\) [30][18][19].Guruswami-Sudan list decoder [1] and modification by Koetter-Vardy for soft-decision decoding [32].
Golay code Majority decoding for the extended Golay code [81].Decoder for the extended Golay code using the hexacode [82].Both Golay codes have a trellis representation and can thus be decoded using trellis decoding [83][84].Bounded-distance decoder requiring at most 121 real operations [85].
Gottesman-Kitaev-Preskill (GKP) code Syndrome measurement can be done by applying a controlled-displacement controlled by an ancilla qubit. The syndrome information can be obtained by measuring the ancilla qubit after controlled-displacement opearation. See Section. 2D in [86].Pauli \(X\),\(Y\) and \(Z\) measurements can be performed by measuring \(-\hat{p},\hat{x}-\hat{p}\) and \(\hat{x}\) repectively. If the measurement outcome is closed to an even multiple of \(\sqrt{\pi}\), then the outcome is +1. If the measurement outcome is closed to an odd multiple of \(\sqrt{\pi}\), then the outcome is -1. See Section. 2D in [86].
Heavy-hexagon code Any graph-based decoder can be used, such as MWPM and Union Find. However, edge weights must be dynamically renormalized using flag-qubit measurement outcomes after each syndrome measurement round.
Hermitian code Unique decoding using syndromes and error locator ideals for polynomial evaluations. Note that Hermitian codes are linear codes so we can compute the syndrome of a received vector. Moreover, akin to the error-locator ideals found in decoding Reed-Solomon codes, for the multivariate case we must define an error locator ideal \(\Lambda \) such that the variety of this ideal over \(\mathbb{F}^{2}_{q}\) is exactly the set of errors. The Sakata algorithm uses these two ingredients to get a unique decoding procedure [60].
Hexacode Bounded-distance decoder requiring at most 34 real operations [85].
Homological bosonic code Decoding requires a different circuit for each possible erasure error, with no general circuit decoding any possible erasure error. Every circuit relies on a generalized conditional rotation, which Ref. [87] calls the QND Gate and which is defined as \(QND_c | x , y \rangle = |x + c y, y \rangle\).
Homological product code Union-find [88].
Honeycomb code The ISG has a static subgroup for all time steps \(r\geq 3\) – that is, a subgroup which remains a subgroup of the ISG for all future times – given by so-called plaquette stabilizers. These are stabilizers consisting of products of check operators around homologically trivial paths. The syndrome bits correspond to the eigenvalues of the plaquette stabilizers. Because of the structure of the check operators, only one-third of all plaquettes are measured each round. The syndrome bits must therefore be represented by a lattice in spacetime, to reflect when and where the outcome was obtained.
Hypergraph product code ReShape decoder that uses minimum weight decoders for the classical codes used in the hypergraph construction [89].Erasure-correction can be implemented approximately with \(O(n^2)\) operations, with a probabilistic version running in \(O(n^{1.5})\) operations [90].

Pipeline MWPM [98][99] - a modification accounting for correlations between events. A modification utilizing the continuous signal obtained in the physical implementation of the stabilizer measurement (as opposed to discretizing the signal into a syndrome bit) [100]. Correlated matching modifies MWPM to include correlations between \(X\) and \(Z\)-type errors [98].

Multi-mode GKP code The MLD decoder for Gaussian displacement errors is realized by evaluating a lattice theta function, and in general the decision can be approximated by either solving (approximating) the closest vector problem (CVP) or by using other effective iterative schemes when e.g. the lattice represents a concatenated GKP code [132][133][134][135].

Number-phase code Modular phase measurement done in the logical \(X\), or dual, basis has zero uncertainty in the case of ideal number phase codes. Approximate number-phase codes are characterized by vanishing phase uncertainty. Such measurements can be utilized for Knill error correction (a.k.a. telecorrection [137]), which is based on teleportation [138][139]. This type of error correction substitutes the complicated correction procedures typical in Fock-state codes for necessity of clean codewords [140].Number measurement can be done by extracting modular number information using a CROT gate \(\mathrm{e}^{(2\pi \mathrm{i} / NM) \hat n \otimes \hat n}\) and performing phase measurements [141][142] on an ancillary mode.

Quantum-double code For any solvable group \(G\), topological charge measurements can be done with an adaptive constant-depth circuit with geometrically local gates and measurements throughout [168].
Qubit code The decoder determining the most likely error given a noise channel is called the maximum-likelihood decoder. For few-qubit codes (\(n\) is small), maximum-likelihood decoding can be based by creating a lookup table. For infinite code families, the size of such a table scales exponentially with \(n\), so approximate decoding algorithms scaling polynomially with \(n\) have to be used.
Qubit stabilizer code The structure of stabilizer codes allows for syndrome-based decoding, where errors are corrected based on the results of stabilizer measurements (syndromes). The size of the circuit extracting the syndrome depends on the weight of its corresponding stabilizer generator. Maximum-likelihood decoding is \(NP\)-complete in general [169][170]. Degenerate maximum-likelihood decoding is \(\#P\)-complete in general [171], although can be polynomial-time for specific codes like the surface code [94].Trellis decoder, which builds a compact representation of the algebraic structure of the normalizer \(\mathsf{N(S)}\) [172].Quantum extension of GRAND decoder [173].Deep neural-network probabilistic decoder [174].

Reed-Solomon (RS) code Although using iFFT has its counterpart iNNT for finite fields, the decoding is usually standard polynomial interpolation in \(k=\mathcal{O}(n\log^2 n)\). However, in erasure decoding, encoded values are only erased in \(r\) points, which is a specific case of polynomial interpolation and can be done in \(\mathcal{O}(n\log n)\) by computing product of the received polynomial and an erasure locator polynomial and using long division to find an original polynomial. The long division step can be omitted to increase speed further by only dividing the derivative of the product polynomial, and derivative of erasure locator polynomial evaluated at erasure locations.Berlekamp-Massey decoder with runtime of order \(O(n^2)\) [18][19].Gorenstein-Peterson-Zierler decoder with runtime of order \(O(n^3)\) [15][31] (see exposition in Ref.

[186]), assuming that \(t \geq (n+k)/2\).Gao decoder using extended Euclidean algorithm [187].Fast-Fourier-transform decoder with runtime of order \(O(n \text{polylog}n)\) [188].List decoders try to find a low-degree bivariate polynomial \(Q(x,y)\) such that evaluation of \(Q\) at \((\alpha_i,y_i)\) is zero. By choosing proper degrees, it can be shown such polynomial exists by drawing an analogy between evaluation of \(Q(\alpha_i,y_i)\) and solving a homogenous linear equation (interpolation). Once this is done, one lists roots of \(y\) that agree at \(\geq t\) points. The breakthrough Sudan list-decoding algorithm corrects up to \(1-\sqrt{2R}\) fraction of errors [189]. Roth and Ruckenstein proposed a modified key equation that allows for correction of more than \(\left\lfloor (n-k)/2 \right\rfloor\) errors [190]. The Guruswami-Sudan algorithm improved the Sudan algorithm to \(1-\sqrt{R}\) [1]; see Ref. [191] for bounds.
