# Kelly Betting with Quantum Payoff: a continuous variable approach

@article{Tirone2021KellyBW, title={Kelly Betting with Quantum Payoff: a continuous variable approach}, author={Salvatore Tirone and M Ghio and Giulia Livieri and Vittorio Giovannetti and Stefano Marmi}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2021}, volume={abs/2001.11395} }

The main purpose of this study is to introduce a semi-classical model describing betting scenarios in which, at variance with conventional approaches, the payoff of the gambler is encoded into the internal degrees of freedom of a quantum memory element. In our scheme, we assume that the invested capital is explicitly associated with the quantum analog of the free-energy (i.e. ergotropy functional by Allahverdyan, Balian, and Nieuwenhuizen) of a single mode of the electromagnetic radiation which…

Quantum strategies

It is proved that in general a quantum strategy is always at least as good as a classical one, and furthermore that when both players use quantum strategies there need not be any equilibrium, but if both are allowed mixed quantum strategiesthere must be.

The maximum exponential rate of growth of the gambler's capital is equal to the rate of transmission of information over the channel, generalized to include the case of arbitrary odds.
