A conventional portfolio selection problem, which is based on a mean-variance model, is difficult to solve by using mathematical programming techniques. This difficulty is caused by the fact that the corresponding mathematical programming problems are large-dimensional one, since almost all variance-covariances of return rates are, typically, not zeros. In this paper, we propose an efficient method for solving a portfolio selection problem, a method which uses a Boltzmann machine. In a real-life problem, it is also important to find the optimal combination of a small number of invested securities out of many securities in a market, because of a limited amount of funds to invest into securities. So we also propose a portfolio selection method to obtain the invest ratio of limited number of securities out of huge number of securities using a multi-stage application of the Boltzmann machine.
