The geometry of quantum codes

Jürgen Bierbrauer, Giorgio Faina, Massimo Giulietti, Stefano Marcugini and Fernanda Pambianco

Vol. 6+7 (2008), No. 1, 53–71

We give a geometric interpretation of additive quantum stabilizer codes in terms of sets of lines in binary symplectic space. It is used to obtain synthetic geometric constructions and non-existence results. In particular several open problems are removed from Grassl’s database.
