Here, we enhanced the architecture possibilities of quantum simulations/computations involving mathematical models that do not have a direct mapping on a physical system. This is the case, for example, of Black-Scholes equations in financial models. It is this paper the original proposal of what later we named Embedding Quantum Simulators or, equivalently, Embedding Quantum Computers. This requires ancillary qubits with a suitable mapping of model onto architecture that was inexistent previously.
