class mindspore.ops.PReLU(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Parametric Rectified Linear Unit activation function.

PReLU is described in the paper Delving Deep into Rectifiers: Surpassing Human-Level Performance on ImageNet Classification. Defined as follows:

\[prelu(x_i)= \max(0, x_i) + \min(0, w * x_i),\]

where \(x_i\) is an element of an channel of the input.


1-dimensional input_x is not supported.

  • input_x (Tensor) - Float tensor, representing the output of the preview layer. With data type of float16 or float32.

  • weight (Tensor) - Float Tensor, w > 0, there are only two shapes are legitimate, 1 or the number of channels of the input. With data type of float16 or float32.


Tensor, with the same type as input_x.

For detailed information, please refer to nn.PReLU.

  • TypeError – If dtype of input_x or weight is neither float16 nor float32.

  • TypeError – If input_x or weight is not a Tensor.

  • ValueError – If length of shape of input_x is equal to 1.

  • ValueError – If length of shape of weight is not equal to 1.
