Class Chain

Bijector which applies a sequence of bijectors.

Inherits From: Bijector

Example Use:

chain = Chain([Exp(), Softplus()], name="one_plus_exp")

Results in:

  • Forward:

    exp = Exp()
    softplus = Softplus()
    Chain([exp, softplus]).forward(x)
    = exp.forward(softplus.forward(x))
    = tf.exp(tf.log(1. + tf.exp(x)))
    = 1. + tf.exp(x)
    
  • Inverse:

    exp = Exp()
    softplus = Softplus()
    Chain([exp, softplus]).inverse(y)
    = softplus.inverse(exp.inverse(y))
    = tf.log(tf.exp(tf.log(y)) - 1.)
    = tf.log(y - 1.)

Methods

__call__

View source

__call__(
    value,
    name=None,
    **kwargs
)

Applies or composes the Bijector, depending on input type.

This is a convenience function which applies the Bijector instance in three different ways, depending on the input:

  1. If the input is a tfd.Distribution instance, return tfd.TransformedDistribution(distribution=input, bijector=self).
  2. If the input is a tfb.Bijector instance, return tfb.Chain([self, input]).
  3. Otherwise, return self.forward(input)

Args:

  • value: A tfd.Distribution, tfb.Bijector, or a Tensor.
  • name: Python str name given to ops created by this function.
  • **kwargs: Additional keyword arguments passed into the created tfd.TransformedDistribution, tfb.Bijector, or self.forward.

Returns:

  • composition: A tfd.TransformedDistribution if the input was a tfd.Distribution, a tfb.Chain if the input was a tfb.Bijector, or a Tensor computed by self.forward.

Examples

sigmoid = tfb.Reciprocal()(
    tfb.AffineScalar(shift=1.)(
      tfb.Exp()(
        tfb.AffineScalar(scale=-1.))))
# ==> `tfb.Chain([
#         tfb.Reciprocal(),
#         tfb.AffineScalar(shift=1.),
#         tfb.Exp(),
#         tfb.AffineScalar(scale=-1.),
#      ])`  # ie, `tfb.Sigmoid()`

log_normal = tfb.Exp()(tfd.Normal(0, 1))
# ==> `tfd.TransformedDistribution(tfd.Normal(0, 1), tfb.Exp())`

tfb.Exp()([-1., 0., 1.])
# ==> tf.exp([-1., 0., 1.])

forward_event_shape

View source

forward_event_shape(input_shape)

Returns both the forward_log_det_jacobian.

Args:

Returns:

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

  • **kwargs: Named arguments forwarded to subclass implementation.

Returns:

  • ildj: Tensor, if this bijector is injective. If not injective, returns the tuple of local log det Jacobians, log(det(Dg_i^{-1}(y))), where g_i is the restriction of g to the ith partition Di.

Raises:

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

with_name_scope

with_name_scope(
    cls,
    method
)

Decorator to automatically enter the module name scope.

      self.w = tf.Variable(tf.random.normal([x.shape[1], 64]))
    return tf.matmul(x, self.w)

Using the above module would produce tf.Variables and tf.Tensors whose names included the module name:

mod = MyModule()
mod(tf.ones([8, 32]))
# ==> <tf.Tensor: ...>
mod.w
# ==> <tf.Variable ...'my_module/w:0'>

Args:

  • method: The method to wrap.

Returns:

The original method wrapped such that it enters the module's name scope.
