Calculating e Using Monte Carlo Methods and Quantum Amplitude Estimation

For iQuHack 2021, I teamed up with a couple high school friends to learn about quantum computing. Our project is on GitHub.


Quantum amplitude estimation techniques may be used to compute the expected value of a quantum Monte Carlo algorithm more accurately than the naive, classical method. In this project, we implement a quantum Monte Carlo algorithm for e=2.71828… and apply quantum amplitude estimation. Submitted to iQuHACK Hackathon at MIT.
