Following the recent great advance of quantum computing technology, there are growing interests in its applications to industries, including finance. In this paper, we focus on derivative pricing based on solving the Black-Scholes partial differential equation by finite difference method (FDM), which is a suitable approach for some types of derivatives but suffers from the curse of dimensionality, that is, exponential growth of complexity in the case of multiple underlying assets. We propose a… Expand


Toward pricing financial derivatives with an IBM quantum computer
This manuscript is a first step towards the design of a general quantum algorithm to fully simulate on quantum computers the Heath-Jarrow-Morton model for pricing interest-rate financial derivatives, and shows indeed that practical applications of quantum computers in finance will be achievable in the near future.

Quantum Pricing with a Smile: Implementation of Local Volatility Model on Quantum Computer
This paper considers the local volatility (LV) model, in which the volatility of the underlying asset price depends on the price and time, and presents two types of implementation. Expand

Prospects and challenges of quantum finance
Three potential applications of quantum computing to finance are described, starting with the state-of-the-art and focusing in particular on recent works by the QC Ware team, which consider quantum speedups for Monte Carlo methods, portfolio optimization, and machine learning. Expand
