Postprocessing optimization and sampling algorithms provide local improvements with minimal overhead to solutions obtained from the quantum processing unit (QPU).

Ocean software provides postprocessing tools, and you can optionally run postprocessing online on D-Wave 2000Q and earlier systems.

This document provides an overview of some available postprocessing methods, presents the results of a number of tests conducted by D-Wave, and describes the role of postprocessing in results obtained by the virtual full-yield chip (VFYC) solver.


Not all accounts have access to all solver types.
