The Toric code is an error correcting code. The distance of the code (I.e. the number of local operations required to convert one logical state into an orthogonal one) is equal to $N$, where the Toric code is defined on an $N\times N$ grid. One of the places that the performance of the Toric code really wins out is that although it is only distance $N$, the ...
