ThreeQ is a Julia module that includes several macros which effectively extend the syntax of Julia to enable rapid prototyping of codes for D-Wave hardware. ThreeQ uses various tools from D-Wave's software suite (including the Python SAPI, qbsolv, and dw) as backends to access D-Wave hardware.
First, Julia must be installed. Julia binaries can be obtained here. In order to actually use the D-Wave, D-Wave hardware must be available and at least part of D-Wave's software stack must also be installed. D-Wave's qbsolv tool can be used without D-Wave hardware. Other components (the Python SAPI and dw) must be obtained from D-Wave, if needed.
Second, this repo must be cloned into a place where Julia can find it. You can tell Julia where to look for it by adding a line to your .juliarc.jl file like
For instance, my .juliarc.jl file contains
and within ~/codes, there is a directory containing this repo called "ThreeQ.jl" or "ThreeQ".
ThreeQ is provided under a BSD-ish license with a "modifications must be indicated" clause. See LICENSE.md file for the full text.
This package is part of the Hybrid Quantum-Classical Computing suite, known internally as LA-CC-16-032.
