AdjVectorBQM.to_numpy_vectors(self, variable_order=None, dtype=None, index_dtype=None, sort_indices=False, sort_labels=True, return_labels=False)

Convert binary quadratic model to NumPy vectors.

  • variable_order (iterable, optional, default=None) – Variable order for the vector output. By default uses the order of the binary quadratic model.

  • dtype (data-type, optional, default=None) – Desired NumPy data type for the linear biases.

  • index_dtype (data-type, optional, default=None) – Desired NumPy data type for the indices.

  • sort_indices (Boolean, optional, default=False) – If True, sorts index vectors of variables and interactions.

  • sort_labels (Boolean, optional, default=True) – If True, sorts vectors based on variable labels.

  • return_labels (Boolean, optional, default=False) – If True, returns a list of variable labels.


A tuple containing:

Array of linear biases.

3-tuple of arrays u, v, and b, where the first two are variables that form interactions and the third is the quadratic bias of the interaction.


Optionally, variable labels.
