Highly accurate numerical evaluation of quantum errors in the circuit model

Time-dependent matrix-product-state (TDMPS) method has been known as an economical tool to simulate a rather large quantum circuit; it can usually simulate a quantum circuit with fifty to one hundred qubits without necessarily requiring a massive parallel machine. In my previous works [1,2,3], I showed that multi-precision computation is requisite for a reliable simulation of quantum computing considering the required machine epsilon and the stability of TDMPS.
In this contribution, I report my simulation results on the quantum error propagation and the error threshold in some circuits for practical quantum algorithms. I consider not only single-qubit errors but multi-qubit errors, especially those caused by calibration errors of coupling constants.
