A new Jupyter Notebook, Reverse Annealing, has been added to Leap. Access it here.
Reverse annealing is a technique that makes it possible to refine known good local solutions, thereby increasing performance for certain applications. It comprises (1) annealing backward from a known classical state to a mid-anneal state of quantum superposition, (2) searching for optimum solutions at this mid-anneal point while in the presence of an increased transverse field (quantum state), and then (3) proceeding forward to a new classical state at the end of the anneal.
Note: This Jupyter Notebook is for advanced users.
