tf.contrib.distributions.bijectors.Affine

Class Affine

Inherits From: Bijector

Defined in tensorflow/contrib/distributions/python/ops/bijectors/affine.py.

Compute Y = g(X; shift, scale) = scale @ X + shift.

Here scale = c * I + diag(D1) + tril(L) + V @ diag(D2) @ V.T.

In TF parlance, the scale term is logically equivalent to:

scale = (
  scale_identity_multiplier * tf.diag(tf.ones(d)) +
  tf.diag(scale_diag) +
  scale_tril +
  scale_perturb_factor @ diag(scale_perturb_diag) @
    tf.transpose([scale_perturb_factor])
)

The scale term is applied without necessarily materializing constituent matrices, i.e., the matmul is matrix-free when possible.

Examples

# Y = X
b = Affine()

# Y = X + shift
b = Affine(shift=[1., 2, 3])

# Y = 2 * I @ X.T + shift
b = Affine(shift=[1., 2, 3],
           scale_identity_multiplier=2.)

# Y = tf.diag(d1) @ X.T + shift
b = Affine(shift=[1., 2, 3],
           scale_diag=[-1., 2, 1])         # Implicitly 3x3.

# Y = (I + v * v.T) @ X.T + shift
b = Affine(shift=[1., 2, 3],
           scale_perturb_factor=[[1., 0],
                                 [0, 1],
                                 [1, 1]])

# Y = (diag(d1) + v * diag(d2) * v.T) @ X.T + shift
b = Affine(shift=[1., 2, 3],
           scale_diag=[1., 3, 3],          # Implicitly 3x3.
           scale_perturb_diag=[2., 1],     # Implicitly 2x2.
           scale_perturb_factor=[[1., 0],
                                 [0, 1],
                                 [1, 1]])

Methods

__init__

__init__(
    shift=None,
    scale_identity_multiplier=None,
    scale_diag=None,
    scale_tril=None,
    scale_perturb_factor=None,
    scale_perturb_diag=None,
    validate_args=False,
    name='affine'
)

Instantiates the Affine bijector. (deprecated)

THIS FUNCTION IS DEPRECATED. It will be removed after 2018-10-01. Instructions for updating: The TensorFlow Distributions library has moved to TensorFlow Probability (https://github.com/tensorflow/probability). You should update all references to use tfp.distributions instead of tf.contrib.distributions.

This Bijector is initialized with shift Tensor and scale arguments, giving the forward operation:

Y = g(X) = scale @ X + shift

where the scale term is logically equivalent to:

scale = (
  scale_identity_multiplier * tf.diag(tf.ones(d)) +
  tf.diag(scale_diag) +
  scale_tril +
  scale_perturb_factor @ diag(scale_perturb_diag) @
    tf.transpose([scale_perturb_factor])
)

If none of scale_identity_multiplier, scale_diag, or scale_tril are specified then scale += IdentityMatrix. Otherwise specifying a scale argument has the semantics of scale += Expand(arg), i.e., scale_diag != None means scale += tf.diag(scale_diag).

Args:

  • shift: Floating-point Tensor. If this is set to None, no shift is applied.
  • scale_identity_multiplier: floating point rank 0 Tensor representing a scaling done to the identity matrix. When scale_identity_multiplier = scale_diag = scale_tril = None then scale += IdentityMatrix. Otherwise no scaled-identity-matrix is added to scale.
  • scale_diag: Floating-point Tensor representing the diagonal matrix. scale_diag has shape [N1, N2, ... k], which represents a k x k diagonal matrix. When None no diagonal term is added to scale.
  • scale_tril: Floating-point Tensor representing the diagonal matrix. scale_diag has shape [N1, N2, ... k, k], which represents a k x k lower triangular matrix. When None no scale_tril term is added to scale. The upper triangular elements above the diagonal are ignored.
  • scale_perturb_factor: Floating-point Tensor representing factor matrix with last two dimensions of shape (k, r). When None, no rank-r update is added to scale.
  • scale_perturb_diag: Floating-point Tensor representing the diagonal matrix. scale_perturb_diag has shape [N1, N2, ... r], which represents an r x r diagonal matrix. When None low rank updates will take the form scale_perturb_factor * scale_perturb_factor.T.
  • validate_args: Python bool indicating whether arguments should be checked for correctness.
  • name: Python str name given to ops managed by this object.

Raises:

  • ValueError: if perturb_diag is specified but not perturb_factor.
  • TypeError: if shift has different dtype from scale arguments.

forward

forward(
    x,
    name='forward'
)

Returns the forward Bijector evaluation, i.e., X = g(Y).

Args:

  • x: Tensor. The input to the "forward" evaluation.
  • name: The name to give this op.

Returns:

Tensor.

Raises:

  • TypeError: if self.dtype is specified and x.dtype is not self.dtype.
  • NotImplementedError: if _forward is not implemented.

forward_event_shape

forward_event_shape(input_shape)

Shape of a single sample from a single batch as a TensorShape.

Same meaning as forward_event_shape_tensor. May be only partially defined.

Args:

  • input_shape: TensorShape indicating event-portion shape passed into forward function.

Returns:

  • forward_event_shape_tensor: TensorShape indicating event-portion shape after applying forward. Possibly unknown.

forward_event_shape_tensor

forward_event_shape_tensor(
    input_shape,
    name='forward_event_shape_tensor'
)

forward_log_det_jacobian

forward_log_det_jacobian(
    x,
    event_ndims,
    name='forward_log_det_jacobian'
)

Returns both the forward_log_det_jacobian.

Args:

  • x: Tensor. The input to the "forward" Jacobian determinant evaluation.
  • event_ndims: Number of dimensions in the probabilistic events being transformed. Must be greater than or equal to self.forward_min_event_ndims. The result is summed over the final dimensions to produce a scalar Jacobian determinant for each event, i.e. it has shape x.shape.ndims - event_ndims dimensions.
  • name: The name to give this op.

Returns:

Tensor, if this bijector is injective. If not injective this is not implemented.

Raises:

  • TypeError: if self.dtype is specified and y.dtype is not self.dtype.
  • NotImplementedError: if neither _forward_log_det_jacobian nor {_inverse, _inverse_log_det_jacobian} are implemented, or this is a non-injective bijector.

inverse

inverse(
    y,
    name='inverse'
)

Returns the inverse Bijector evaluation, i.e., X = g^{-1}(Y).

Args:

  • y: Tensor. The input to the "inverse" evaluation.

)

Returns the (log o det o Jacobian o inverse)(y).

Mathematically, returns: log(det(dX/dY))(Y). (Recall that: X=g^{-1}(Y).)

Args:

  • y: Tensor. The input to the "inverse" Jacobian determinant evaluation.

Raises:

  • TypeError: if self.dtype is specified and y.dtype is not self.dtype.
  • NotImplementedError: if _inverse_log_det_jacobian is not implemented.
