### Is it possible to demonstrate a quadratic speed-up of a quantum algorithm on a classical computer?

I have not read the full details of the paper, but have attempted to skim over the most relevant bits to the question (i.e. I could easily have missed something). As I read the paper, they are doing ...

### Travelling salesman problem on quantum computer

Based on comment by DaftWullie and my experience with the algortihm, it seems that a title of the article is misleading. The authors claim that algorithm they proposed is efficient. However, this is ...

### Cannot replicate results in article on pricing financial derivatives on IBM Q

One thing that I noticed. If cu3 gate from $q[2]$ to $q[0]$ is some $U$, then the cu3 from $q[2]$ to $q[0]$ should be $U^2$ in the phase estimation algorithm, but the comparisons of operators with the ...

### Qiskit sample - Portfolio optimization

Well you can fix it also. Like if you want to take 3 assets. THEN TAKE BUDGET=3. [BUDGET IS THE NO OF ASSETS U WANT TO SELECT OUT OF TOTAL ASSETS(num_assets)] Now your number of assets can be 5, 10, ...

### What is Ising Hamiltonian ? What its role in Portfolio Diversification?

The Ising model is a formulation of your problem. Variables are variables $s_i$ that can take +1/-1 values.  \text{E}_{ising}(s) = \sum_{i=1}^N h_i s_i + \sum_{i=1}^N \sum_{j=i+1}^...
