But I am a bit confused. So you mentioned that "it is not actually a measure of any physical property". But we do compute this quantity using the Ising Energy formula. So what do you mean by saying that it is not the measure of a physical quantity?

Ising model isn't energy. Ising model is used to demonstrate the phase transitions and it doesn't correspond to an actual physical system. In our case, the Ising model is used to govern Quadratic Models such as BQM, CQM, etc.

This can be seen easily by noticing that minimizing x to BQM(x) + alpha is the same for all alpha where alpha is a constant.

Tanjid I(Report)Hi Sehmimul,

The energy buffered in the submitted job has no unit, as it is not actually a measure of any physical property.

The energy is just left-hand side of the equation, governing BQM, CQM, etc.

to`BQM(x) + alpha`

is the same for all`alpha`

where`alpha`

is a constant.Best Regards,
