Quantum annealing for graph coloring problems

This paper explores using quantum annealing to solve graph coloring problems like the monochromatic triangle problem and Ramsey numbers. The monochromatic triangle problem converts naturally to a quadratic unconstrained binary optimization (QUBO) form for quantum hardware. The Ramsey number problem requires order reduction to reach a quadratic form. Experiments were run using the D-Wave Advantage quantum annealer.
