tf.linalg.LinearOperatorZeros

LinearOperator acting like a [batch] zero matrix.

Inherits From: LinearOperator, Module

This operator acts like a [batch] zero matrix A with shape [B1,...,Bb, N, M] for some b >= 0. The first b indices index a batch member. For every batch index (i1,...,ib), A[i1,...,ib, : :] is an N x M matrix. This matrix A is not materialized, but for purposes of broadcasting this shape will be relevant.

LinearOperatorZeros is initialized with num_rows, and optionally num_columns,batch_shape, anddtypearguments. Ifnum_columnsisNone, then this operator will be initialized as a square matrix. Ifbatch_shapeisNone, this operator efficiently passes through all arguments. Ifbatch_shape` is provided, broadcasting may occur, which will require making copies.

# Create a 2 x 2 zero matrix.
operator = LinearOperatorZero(num_rows=2, dtype=tf.float32)

operator.to_dense()
==> [[0., 0.]
     [0., 0.]]

operator.shape
==> [2, 2]

operator.determinant()
==> 0.

x = ... Shape [2, 4] Tensor
operator.matmul(x)
==> Shape [2, 4] Tensor, same as x.

# Create a 2-batch of 2x2 zero matrices
operator = LinearOperatorZeros(num_rows=2, batch_shape=[2])
operator.to_dense()
==> [[[0., 0.]
      [0., 0.]],
     [[0., 0.]
      [0., 0.]]]

# Here, even though the operator has a batch shape, the input is the same as
# the output, so x can be passed through without a copy.  The operator is able
# to detect that no broadcast is necessary because both x and the operator
# have statically defined shape.
x = ... Shape [2, 2, 3]
operator.matmul(x)
==> Shape [2, 2, 3] Tensor, same as tf.zeros_like(x)

# Here the operator and x have different batch_shape, and are broadcast.
