Recently, there has been increasing interest in designing schemes for quantum computations that are robust against errors. Although considerable research has been devoted to developing quantum error correction schemes, much less attention has been paid to optimizing the speed it takes to perform a quantum computation and developing computation models that act on decoherence-free subspaces. Speeding up a quantum computation is important, because fewer errors are likely to result. Encoding

In this paper, we consider quantum computation in a decoherence-free subspace and also optimize its speed. To achieve this, we perform certain single-qubit quantum computations by simply permuting the underlying qubits. Together with exchange-interactions or Ising-interactions and other resonant couplings, we present a new scheme for quantum computation that potentially improves the speed in which a quantum computation can be done.
