# dimod.reference.composites.clipcomposite.ClipComposite.sample¶

ClipComposite.sample(bqm, lower_bound=None, upper_bound=None, **parameters)[source]

Clip and sample from the provided binary quadratic model.

If lower_bound and upper_bound are given variables with value above or below are clipped.

Parameters: bqm (dimod.BinaryQuadraticModel) – Binary quadratic model to be sampled from. lower_bound (number) – Value by which to clip the variables from below. upper_bound (number) – Value by which to clip the variables from above. **parameters – Parameters for the sampling method, specified by the child sampler. dimod.SampleSet
