Title: Threshold Simulations For Triangular Color Codes

Color codes are a type of topologically fault-tolerant quantum error-correcting codes. They have an advantage over other topological codes in that two dimensional color codes can implement the Clifford group transversally. In this presentation, we present a method for decoding these codes and simulations of error-correcting scenarios leading to preliminary fault- tolerant thresholds with and without considering errors in the syndrome measurement. (Work by Patrick Rice, Jonas Anderson, and Andrew Landahl).
