# tf.contrib.rnn.GRUCell

### class tf.contrib.rnn.core_rnn_cell.GRUCell

Gated Recurrent Unit cell (cf. http://arxiv.org/abs/1406.1078).

## Methods

### zero_state(batch_size, dtype)

Return zero-filled state tensor(s).

#### Args:

• batch_size: int, float, or unit Tensor representing the batch size.
• dtype: the data type to use for the state.

#### Returns:

If state_size is an int or TensorShape, then the return value is a N-D tensor of shape [batch_size x state_size] filled with zeros.

If state_size is a nested list or tuple, then the return value is a nested list or tuple (of the same structure) of 2-D tensors with the shapes [batch_size x s] for each s in state_size.
