Quantum Algorithm for Position Weight Matrix Matching

In this article, we propose two quantum algorithms for a problem in bioinformatics, position weight matrix (PWM) matching, which aims to find segments (sequence motifs) in a biological sequence, such as DNA and protein that have high scores defined by the PWM and are, thus, of informational importance related to biological function. The two proposed […]

Pricing Multi-Asset Derivatives by Finite-Difference Method on a Quantum Computer

Following the recent great advance of quantum computing technology, there are growing interests in its applications to industries, including finance. In this article, we focus on derivative pricing based on solving the Black–Scholes partial differential equation by the finite-difference method (FDM), which is a suitable approach for some types of derivatives but suffers from the […]
