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 discusses the state preparation step of the QAE, or equivalently, the implementation of the asset price evolution.

A Structured Survey of Quantum Computing for the Financial Industry

It is demonstrated that quantum Boltzmann machines enable a form of quantum state tomography that not only estimates a state but provides a prescription for generating copies of the reconstructed state as well as evidence that quantum models outperform their classical counterparts.

Quantum deep learning

It is shown that quantum computing not only reduces the time required to train a deep restricted Boltzmann machine, but also provides a richer and more comprehensive framework for deep learning than classical computing and leads to significant improvements in the optimization of the underlying objective function.
