There is a lack of detailed information in the docs about the 4 tuples meaning in the "anneal_schedule" parameter. I found this on the forum and I wonder if it is correct:
anneal_schedule = (
(0.0, 0.0), # Start the anneal (time 0.0) at 0.0 (min)
(1.0, 0.25), # Quickly ramp up to 0.25 anneal at 1us
(19.0, 0.75), # Hold the anneal at 0.25 until 19us, then go up to 0.75
(20.0, 1.0) # End the full anneal at 20us
response = sampler.sample_qubo(Q, anneal_schedule=anneal_schedule, num_reads)
Seems that the 2nd tuple is about the "quench", in this case, if I want to avoid the "quickly ramp", should I set up 2nd tuple to "(5, 0.25)" and 3rd tuple to (15, 075), right? The pause is the difference: 15us - 5us = 10us?
That example setup will run just 2us of the entire 20us anneal time? Just from 0 to 1us and from 19us to 20us?
I thought the "pause" will hold the anneal for some microseconds, but after that, the remain anneal time (19us) will run.
e.: in a 20us anneal, if I want to pause it at 50% for 100us, it's possible?! (run the first 10us, pause 100us, run the last 10us)
"(0.0, 0.0), (10.0, 0.50), (110.0, 0.50), (120.0, 1.0)" - is this considered a 20us annealing process with 100us pause, or is this a 120us annealing (QPU execution) process?
Where can I find the right information about those "anneal_schedule" 4 tuples?
Thank you very much.
