Table 2 Information about the optimal TLR scheme obtained by solving the binary linear program for the measurement of the plaquette operator \(\pmb{B_{p}}\) and the six vertex operators \(\pmb{Q_{v}}\) of Figure  2 , following the plaquette reduction method of Ref. [ 9 ]

  1. In particular, all the two-qubit couplings of \(\mathcal{P}_{\mathrm{reduction}}\) in Table 1 are realized: there are no more than five TQs in each TLR, and each TQ couples to maximally four TLRs. A pictorial representation of this TLR scheme and of the arbitrary unit (a.u.) is given in Figure 4.
