We propose the Wishart planted ensemble, a class of zero-field Ising models with tunable algorithmic hardness and specifiable (or planted) ground state. The problem class arises from a simple procedure for generating a family of random integer programming problems with specific statistical symmetry properties but turns out to have intimate connections to a sign-inverted variant of the Hopfield model. The Hamiltonian contains only 2-spin interactions, with the coupler matrix following a type of… 
Polaritonic XY-Ising machine
It is argued that the proposed architecture for the remote coupling control offers an improvement over geometrically coupled condensates in both accuracy and stability as well as increases versatility, range, and connectivity of spin Hamiltonians that can be simulated with polariton networks.
Complexity continuum within Ising formulation of NP problems
This work proposes to identify computationally simple instances with an `optimisation simplicity criterion' and probes an intermediate complexity for sparse and dense models by analysing circulant coupling matrices, that can be `rewired' to introduce greater complexity.
Effects of setting temperatures in the parallel tempering Monte Carlo algorithm.
It is demonstrated that there is no performance advantage for the methods that promote nonuniform swapping probabilities on spin-glass problems where the order parameter has a smooth transition between phases at the critical temperature, but on Wishart problems that have a first-order phase transition at low temperatures, the feedback-optimized method exhibits a time-to-solution speedup.
Finding spin glass ground states using quantum walks
This work investigates the performance of continuous-time quantum walks as a tool for finding spin glass ground states, a problem that serves as a useful model for realistic optimization problems and uncover significant ways in which solving spin glass problems differs from applying quantum walks to the search problem.
Variational Neural Annealing
It is shown that by generalizing the target distribution with a parameterized model, an analogous annealing framework based on the variational principle can be used to search for groundstate solutions in the asymptotic limit.
Nonlinear systems for unconventional computing
This chapter reviews some of the systems and physically-inspired algorithms that show such promise and how they can be combined to form a hybrid architecture that may one day compete with conventional computing.

Chook - A comprehensive suite for generating binary optimization problems with planted solutions
Chook is presented, an open-source Python-based tool to generate discrete optimization problems of tunable complexity with a priori known solutions for higher-order (beyond quadratic) binary optimization problems.


Mean-field equations for spin models with orthogonal interaction matrices
The mean-field (or TAP) equations are derived by resumming the high-temperature expansion of the Gibbs free energy and the configurational entropy is extensive in the range TRSB<T<TM.
Finding Low-Temperature States With Parallel Tempering, Simulated Annealing And Simple Monte Carlo
Monte Carlo simulation techniques, like simulated annealing and parallel tempering, are often used to evaluate low-temperature properties and find ground states of disordered systems. Here we compare
Finite size effects at thermally-driven first order phase transitions: A phenomenological theory of the order parameter distribution
We consider the rounding and shifting of a firstorder transition in a finited-dimensional hypercubicLd geometry,L being the linear dimension of the system, and surface effects are avoided by periodic
From near to eternity: Spin-glass planting, tiling puzzles, and constraint-satisfaction problems.
By varying the proportions of subproblem types, the Hamiltonian can span a dramatic range of typical computational complexity, from fairly easy to many orders of magnitude more difficult than prototypical bimodal and Gaussian spin glasses in three space dimensions.
This brief review discusses methods to locate and characterize first order phase transitions, paying particular attention to finite size effects. In the first part, the order parameter probability
Weighted averages and order parameters for the infinite range Ising spin glass
The Sherrington-Kirkpatrick spin glass model (1975) is studied by replicas and by analysing the mean field equations of Thouless, Anderson and Palmer (TAP) (1977). The authors show that the standard
Probing for quantum speedup in spin-glass problems with planted solutions
This work introduces a method to construct a set of frustrated Ising-model optimization problems with tunable hardness, and studies the performance of a D-Wave Two device with up to 503 qubits on these problems and compares it to a suite of classical algorithms.
Spin-glass models of neural networks.
Two dynamical models, proposed by Hopfield and Little to account for the collective behavior of neural networks, are analyzed and it is shown that the long-time behavior of the two models is identical, for all temperatures below a transition temperature ${T}_{c}$.
Mean-field theory for a spin-glass model of neural networks: TAP free energy and the paramagnetic to spin-glass transition
An approach is proposed to the Hopfield model where the mean-field treatment is made for a given set of stored patterns (sample) and then the statistical average over samples is taken. This
We study the Hopfield model with an opposite interactional sign by using a one-step replica symmetry breaking ansatz and the marginality condition. We show that this model belongs to spin glass
