Complex systems are made up of many interconnected components. The interactions between components further produce emerging complex collective behaviors. In most cases, a complex system can be represented as a network in which the nodes represent the elements and the connected links illustrate the interactions. The spreading process is one of the most important dynamics in complex networks and systems. Since 2000, scientific findings related to spreading models and complex networks are experiencing a boom. Quantum computers are also complex systems. The development of quantum computing is to bring qualitative change to many fields by solving some problems faster than classical computers. However, during quantum computing, errors are spreading in the quantum circuits and accumulated with time...
