I have recently been interested in the field of 'Econophysics' which as I understand it is the practice of basically applying results of physics in areas such as non-linear dynamics and stochastic physics to already known facts of economics (i.e. it is not a field of new discoveries but just a different perspective on economics).
I am also a lover of all things Quantum.
I was wondering if there have been any attempts to use QC to simulate economic models, which tend to be really difficult on classical computers. The field of "Quantum Finance" (how much more buzzword-y can a field get...), is able to describe many phenomena in finance and monetary supply management using quantum concepts like Hilbert Spaces and state collapses (this has nothing to do with quantum mechanics, it just uses the same formalism). Maybe in the same way that Hamiltonian simulation can be done easily on a quantum computer, because it just naturally lends itself to the medium, these Quantum Finance models can also be done easily?
