A fully connected feedforward layer. This layer implements the transformation from a m-dimensional input vector to a n-dimensional output vector : where is a m by n weights matrix and is a n-dimensional bias vector.

Class Constructor

Constructs a new FullyConnected layer given input and output sizes.

Argument Type Description
input_size int Size of input to the layer (Length of input vector).
output_size int Size of output from the layer (Length of output vector).
use_bias bool=False If True then the transformation will include a bias, i.e., the transformation would be affine.


A FullyConnected layer which takes 10-dimensional inputs and gives a 20-dimensional output:

>>> from netket.layer import FullyConnected
>>> l=FullyConnected(input_size=10,output_size=20,use_bias=True)
>>> print(l.n_par)

Class Methods


Member function to initialise layer parameters.

Argument Type Description
seed int=1234 The random number generator seed.
sigma float=0.1 Standard deviation of normal distribution from which parameters are drawn.
