What is Amplify SDK?#
The Fixstars Amplify SDK (hereafter Amplify SDK) is a Python library for formulating combinatorial optimization problems and running external optimization solvers.
The Amplify SDK makes formulating combinatorial optimization problems simple and intuitive. Once the problem is formulated, you can easily use quantum annealing machines, Ising machines, quantum computers with QAOA (Quantum Approximate Optimization Algorithm), and various hardware and software solvers including MIP solvers, through a common interface.
Amplify SDK features
Formulating and solving combinatorial optimization problems couldn’t be easier or more intuitive. Amplify Annealing Engine, a solver that requires no further installation, is also provided free of charge.
Changed in version 1.0.0
The Fixstars Amplify SDK has undergone a significant makeover in version 1.0.0, making it more intuitive and easier to use than ever before, expanding the models covered, and making it more flexible and faster. For a migration guide from previous versions, see Migrating from Previous Versions. A compatibility layer with the earlier version is also provided to ensure a smooth transition. You can find documentation for previous versions at https://amplify.fixstars.com/en/docs/amplify/v0/.
