Forward Quantum Annealing: one solution after another.


In the reverse annealing process, I read that the process per default always starts from the same initial state (given by the user) or from the last solution obtained if the option is activated. This made me wonder what is going on for the forward quantum annealing: does each anneal always starts from the same superposition state, or does it start from the previous state (solution) that the QPU read? In that last case, I understand that after each reading/sampling, so after the particles wave function had collapsed, the QPU wait a little bit to reinitialize the system from the last solution obtained. More generally: where I can find info about Quantum Annealing made by D-Wave especially focusing on the step going from one solution to another?

Thanks you very much.
