In what situation are three rounds of syndrome measurement required for fault-tolerance in the surface code?

I have heard multiple times the claim that three rounds of syndrome measurement required for fault-tolerance in the surface code. I'm not sure what situation would require this, as I think less would ...

How's quantum noise and fault-tolerance related to symplectic geometry and geometric quantization?

Gil Kalai often speaks of the apparent connection between symplectic geometry, geometric quantization, and quantum noise. He is known to describe one of his focus areas as: (...) properties and ...

(Why) does every CSS code allow for transversal measurement?

I recently encountered the statement that any CSS code [that encodes single-qubit logical states] has a property that measurements can be performed qubit-wise, but the measurement outcome of every ...

How to do the counting when computing the fault tolerant threshold of quantum codes?

Here, I want to ask a basic question about how to compute the fault tolerance threshold of quantum codes. As I know, maybe, the most usual way is to do some simulations. Howvever, I am more intersted ...

Is there any published research on quantum fault tolerant circuits that are designed for a specific task or algorithm?

I have searched for works that focus on designing a fault-tolerant quantum circuit for a specialized application and only found 'Error-corrected quantum annealing with hundreds of qubits' by Pudenz, ...
