Today I released "Error propagation in loss- and failure-tolerant quantum computation schemes" with my co-authors Tim Ralph and Bill Munro. This a supplementary paper to our earlier paper "Error tolerance and tradeoffs in loss- and failure-tolerant quantum computing schemes". We describe in detail how error propagation and accumulation occurs in various loss and failure tolerant quantum computing protocols and derive analytic expressions showing their error scaling behavior.
