- is_independent_set(G, indep_nodes)¶
Determines whether the given nodes form an independent set.
An independent set is a set of nodes such that the subgraph of G induced by these nodes contains no edges.
G (NetworkX graph) – The graph on which to check the independent set.
indep_nodes (list) – List of nodes that form a maximum independent set, as determined by the given sampler.
is_independent – True if indep_nodes form an independent set.
- Return type
This example checks two sets of nodes, both derived from a single Chimera unit cell, for an independent set. The first set is the horizontal tile’s nodes; the second has nodes from the horizontal and verical tiles.
