Title: Quantum Error Correction

Abstract: Quantum error correction as a field of study goes back over two decades, growing out of early attempts to build small-scale quantum computers and develop a theoretical underpinning for experimental attempts to control features of evolving quantum systems. The subject has since seen significant development and now connects with every area of quantum information science. In this talk, I will give an introduction to quantum error correction through a mathematical lens. I will focus on the basic framework, and touch on examples and results that involve aspects of group theory, matrix theory, and operator algebras.
