Welcome to the PECOS Docs!

PECOS, which stands for “Performance Estimator of Codes On Surfaces,” is a Python package that provides a framework for studying, developing, and evaluating quantum error-correcting protocols. PECOS attempts to balance simplicity, functionality, and extensibility.


The first incarnation of PECOS was created by Ciarán Ryan-Anderson in June 2014 to verify the lattice-surgery procedures in arXiv:1407.5103 [LRA14].
