Standard to select base hamiltonaian for Adiabatic quantum computing

I'm learning about connection between QUBO and The Ising Model.

It says

Take the base Hamiltonian of an adiabatic process as $$\sum_i \big(\frac{1-\sigma_i^x}{2}\big)$$

to implement Hamiltonian for Ising Model. Is there any specific reason or standard for selecting this hamiltonian? Or what material will help me? Thank you.

While a general QUBO task has form $$\sum_{i=1}^n b_ix_i + \sum_{i=1}^n\sum_{j=1}^na_{ij}x_ix_j \rightarrow \min,$$ where $$x_i \in \{0;1\}$$ and $$a_{ij},b_{i} \in \mathbb{R}$$, an Ising Hamiltonian has form $$\sum_{i=1}^n b_iZ_i + \sum_{i=1}^n\sum_{j=1}^na_{ij}Z_i\otimes Z_j,$$ where $$Z_i$$ is $$Z$$-gate applied on $$i$$th qubit while identity operators are applied on other qubits.
Concerning the base Hamiltonian in your question. The ground state of this Hamiltonian is well known, it is a equally distributed superposition of $$n$$ qubits, i.e. $$\frac{1}{\sqrt{2^n}}\sum_{i=0}^{2^n-1}|i\rangle$$. This superposition can be prepared easily. As a result, a quantum annealer is in ground state at the beginning. Then the Hamiltonian of the system is slowly changed to Ising one. But the system remains in the ground state of combined Hamiltonian (base + Ising) - this is known as adiabatic theorem. In the end, the system is described by Ising Hamiltonian only and it is still in the ground state . This means that you have found minimum of the QUBO taks equivalent to the Ising Hamiltonian.
