Abstract. We further the connection between information theory and statistical
mechanics by developing a thermodynamic approach to quantum error
correction. Our method of protecting a code space of quantum bits
from interference involves realizing it as a thermo-equilibrium
subspace in the Hilbert space of a quantum statistical model.
We apply the ideas of Claude Shannon to quantum error correction.
