int findEmbedding(graph::input_graph &var_g, graph::input_graph &qubit_g, optional_parameters ¶ms, vector<vector<int>> &chains)
The main entry function of this library.
This method primarily dispatches the proper implementation of the algorithm where some parameters/behaviours have been fixed at compile time.
In terms of dispatch, there are three dynamicallyselected classes which are combined, each according to a specific optional parameter.
a domain_handler, described in embedding_problem.hpp, manages constraints of the form “variable a’s chain must be a subset of…”
a fixed_handler, described in embedding_problem.hpp, manages contstraints of the form “variable a’s chain must be exactly…”
a pathfinder, described in pathfinder.hpp, which come in two flavors, serial and parallel The optional parameters themselves can be found in util.hpp. Respectively, the controlling options for the above are restrict_chains, fixed_chains, and threads.

member of a chain is an unordered map storing the linking information for this chain. Thedata
member of a chain stores the connectivity information for the chain.Links: If
u
andv
are variables which are connected by an edge, the following must be true: either chain_u or chain_v is empty,or
chain_u.links[v] is a key in chain_u.data, chain_v.links[u] is a key in chain_v.data, and (chain_u.links[v], chain_v.links[u]) are adjacent in the qubit graph
Moreover, (chain_u.links[u]) must exist if chain_u is not empty, and this is considered the root of the chain.
Data: The
data
member stores the connectivity information. More precisely,data
is a mappingqubit>(parent, refs)
where:parent
is also contained in the chainrefs
is the total number of references toqubit
, counting both parents and links the chain root is its own parent.
