From: Finite temperature quantum annealing solving exponentially small gap problem with non-monotonic success probability

Fig. 3

Ratio of the gap to the thermal density of states, as a function of sector size. Two alternating sector chain cases are shown. The position of the minimum is determined by d rather than Δ, as can be seen by comparing to Fig. 2d, where the plot of \(d = 2^{k^ \ast }\) alone correlates well with the position of minima in the empirical success probability curves
