# dimod.AdjMapBQM.scale¶

AdjMapBQM.scale(scalar, ignored_variables=None, ignored_interactions=None, ignore_offset=False)

Multiply all the biases by the specified scalar.

Parameters
• scalar (number) – Value by which to scale the energy range of the binary quadratic model.

• ignored_variables (iterable, optional) – Biases associated with these variables are not scaled.

• ignored_interactions (iterable[tuple], optional) – Biases associated with these interactions, formatted as an iterable of 2-tuples, are not scaled.

• ignore_offset (bool, default=False) – If True, the offset is not scaled.
