FlamingPy (FP) is a cross-platform Python library with a variety of backends for efficient simulations of error correction in fault-tolerant quantum computers.

Features

  • Simulates error correction on combinations of CV and DV codes to obtain estimations of fault-tolerant thresholds.

  • Supports encoding qubits into GKP states (more precisely, combinations of GKP and squeezed states).

  • Is conveniently modularized, allowing the user to insert custom noise models, codes, decoders, backends and other features.

  • Provides a host of visualization tools for ease of verifying correctness.
