class mindspore.nn.probability.distribution.Gumbel(loc, scale, seed=0, dtype=mstype.float32, name="Gumbel")[source]

Gumbel distribution.

  • loc (float, list, numpy.ndarray, Tensor) – The location of Gumbel distribution.

  • scale (float, list, numpy.ndarray, Tensor) – The scale of Gumbel distribution.

  • seed (int) – the seed used in sampling. The global seed is used if it is None. Default: None.

  • dtype (mindspore.dtype) – type of the distribution. Default: mstype.float32.

  • name (str) – the name of the distribution. Default: ‘Gumbel’.

Supported Platforms:

Ascend GPU


scale must be greater than zero. dist_spec_args are loc and scale. dtype must be a float type because Gumbel distributions are continuous. kl_loss and cross_entropy are not supported on GPU backend.
