Negative value of energy

I am curious about: Is there any negative value of the energy of a constraint or is there any negative value of the total BQM?

  • Hello,

    The problem is formulated by choosing weights/biases for the linear terms (qubits) and quadratic terms (couplers).

    The terms are combined to form the total energy of the system.

    You can take a look at this documentation to get an idea of how the energy values are calculated from the biases on the linear and quadratic terms:

    These values can be positive or negative, so you can imagine that the total energy can be positive or negative.

    This is also the case of constraints.

    I hope this is helpful.

    Please feel free to reach out with more questions.
