dwavebinarycsp.factories.constraint.gates.and_gate

and_gate(variables, vartype=<Vartype.BINARY: frozenset({0, 1})>, name='AND')[source]

AND gate.

Parameters:
  • variables (list) – Variable labels for the and gate as [in1, in2, out], where in1, in2 are inputs and out the gate’s output.
  • vartype (Vartype, optional, default='BINARY') –

    Variable type. Accepted input values:

    • Vartype.SPIN, ‘SPIN’, {-1, 1}
    • Vartype.BINARY, ‘BINARY’, {0, 1}
  • name (str, optional, default='AND') – Name for the constraint.
Returns:

Constraint that is satisfied when its variables are assigned values that match the valid states of an AND gate.

Return type:

Constraint(Constraint)

Examples

>>> import dwavebinarycsp
>>> import dwavebinarycsp.factories.constraint.gates as gates
>>> csp = dwavebinarycsp.ConstraintSatisfactionProblem(dwavebinarycsp.BINARY)
>>> csp.add_constraint(gates.and_gate(['a', 'b', 'c'], name='AND1'))
>>> csp.check({'a': 1, 'b': 0, 'c': 0})
True
