dimod is a shared API for samplers. It provides:
classes for quadratic models—such as the binary quadratic model (BQM) class that contains Ising and QUBO models used by samplers such as the D-Wave system—and higher-order (non-quadratic) models.
reference examples of samplers and composed samplers.
abstract base classes for constructing new samplers and composed samplers.
The following sections give an orientation to dimod with usage examples:
