class mindspore.ops.LogSoftmax(axis=- 1)[source]

Log Softmax activation function.

Applies the Log Softmax function to the input tensor on the specified axis. Supposes a slice in the given axis, \(x\) for each element \(x_i\), the Log Softmax function is shown as follows:

\[\text{output}(x_i) = \log \left(\frac{\exp(x_i)} {\sum_{j = 0}^{N-1}\exp(x_j)}\right),\]

where \(N\) is the length of the Tensor.


axis (int) – The axis to perform the Log softmax operation. Default: -1.

  • logits (Tensor) - Tensor of shape \((N, *)\), where \(*\) means, any number of additional dimensions, with float16 or float32 data type.


Tensor, with the same type and shape as the logits.

  • TypeError – If axis is not an int.

  • TypeError – If dtype of logits is neither float16 nor float32.

  • ValueError – If axis is not in range [-len(logits.shape), len(logits.shape)).
