The rise of Quantum Computing is such that practically every day we can read new articles about the possibilities of this emerging technology. As a leading expert in this field of knowledge, who is aware of the growing scope of Quantum Computing, the prestigious mathematician David Orrell has launched a journal under the title of “Quantum Economics and Finance” to keep abreast of all the latest developments in this promising field.
David Orrell holds a PhD in mathematics from Oxford University and his books on science and economics have been published in twenty countries. He is a leading proponent of quantum finance and economics and, as co-author of “The Evolution of Money”, he proposes a quantum theory of money and value, according to which money and value are not the same, as he claims that money has dualistic properties because it combines the properties of a thing owned and valued with those of an abstract number.
The fact that Orrell is leading the project for this new publication is a guarantee of success. In addition, Sage is behind the publication of Quantum Economics and Finance (QEF), in collaboration with the Centre for Quantum Social and Cognitive Science (CQSCS). The journal is a peer-reviewed publication and aims to become the main forum for research in this field, presenting both theoretical studies and empirical results on the applications of quantum theory in economics and, more generally, in the social sciences. In this regard, the role of quantum game theory is of particular importance, for both its theoretical value and its potential in solving real-world problems. The phenomena of entanglement and superposition, typical of quantum theory, play a leading role in this field of study and bring in a whole new approach to the diverse aspects of the world of economics and finance.
All these matters are the focus of the research being carried out at QETEL, the laboratory on Quantum Computing that has been set up within the Air Institute and which aims to complement the research that the BISITE Group of the University of Salamanca is carrying out in other technological fields.
