Suppose I have a portfolio optimization problem where I have to minimize, $$qx^T\sum x - \mu^Tx$$

where q is the maximum risk and x is {0,1}^n and $\mu$ are the expected returns.

Now I have to convert this problem into Hamiltonian and subsequently find the Pauli Basis for it. How can I do so?

  • $\begingroup$ Ah, okay. Maybe look into general optimization problems? I'm not as familiar with creating Hamiltonians from general problems $\endgroup$
