mindspore.nn.probability.distribution.Logistic

class mindspore.nn.probability.distribution.Logistic(loc=None, scale=None, seed=None, dtype=mstype.float32, name="Logistic")[source]

Logistic distribution.

Parameters
  • loc (int, float, list, numpy.ndarray, Tensor) – The location of the Logistic distribution.

  • scale (int, float, list, numpy.ndarray, Tensor) – The scale of the Logistic distribution.

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

  • dtype (mindspore.dtype) – The type of the event samples. Default: mstype.float32.

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

Supported Platforms:

Ascend GPU

Note

scale must be greater than zero. dist_spec_args are loc and scale. dtype must be a float type because Logistic distributions are continuous.

Examples

>>> import mindspore
>>> import mindspore.nn as nn
>>> import mindspore.nn.probability.distribution as msd
>>> from mindspore import Tensor
>>> # To initialize a Logistic distribution of loc 3.0 and scale 4.0.
>>> l1 = msd.Logistic(3.0, 4.0, dtype=mindspore.float32)
>>> # A Logistic distribution can be initialized without arguments.
>>> # In this case, `loc` and `scale` must be passed in through arguments.
>>> l2 = msd.Logistic(dtype=mindspore.float32)
>>>
>>> # Here are some tensors used below for testing
>>> value = Tensor([1.0, 2.0, 3.0], dtype=mindspore.float32)
>>> loc_a = Tensor([2.0], dtype=mindspore.float32)
>>> scale_a = Tensor([2.0, 2.0, 2.0], dtype=mindspore.float32)
>>> loc_b = Tensor([1.0], dtype=mindspore.float32)
>>> scale_b = Tensor([1.0, 1.5, 2.0], dtype=mindspore.float32)
