  1. In order to improve efficiency, users must first map the input of dimension [T, hidden_size] to input of [T, 4 * hidden_size], and then pass it to this OP.

This OP implements the LSTMP (LSTM Projected) layer. The LSTMP layer has a separate linear mapping layer behind the LSTM layer. – Sak, H., Senior, A., & Beaufays, F. (2014) .

Compared with the standard LSTM layer, LSTMP has an additional linear mapping layer, which is used to map from the original hidden state \(h_t\) to the lower dimensional state \(r_t\) . This reduces the total number of parameters and computational complexity, especially when the output unit is relatively large.

The default implementation of the OP contains diagonal/peephole connections, please refer to Gers, F. A., & Schmidhuber, J. (2000) . If you need to disable the peephole connections, set use_peepholes to False.

This OP computes each timestep as follows:

\[i_t = \sigma(W_{ix}x_{t} + W_{ir}r_{t-1} + W_{ic}c_{t-1} + b_i)\]
\[f_t = \sigma(W_{fx}x_{t} + W_{fr}r_{t-1} + W_{fc}c_{t-1} + b_f)\]
\[o_t = \sigma(W_{ox}x_{t} + W_{or}r_{t-1} + W_{oc}c_{t-1} + b_o)\]
\[\widetilde{c_t} = act_g(W_{cx}x_t + W_{cr}r_{t-1} + b_c)\]
\[c_t = f_t \odot c_{t-1} + i_t \odot \widetilde{c_t}\]
\[h_t = o_t \odot act_h(c_t)\]
\[r_t = \overline{act_h}(W_{rh}h_t)\]

The symbolic meanings in the formula are as follows:

  • \(x_{t}\) represents the input at timestep \(t\)

  • \(h_{t}\) represents the hidden state at timestep \(t\)

  • \(r_{t}\) : represents the state of the projected output of the hidden state \(h_{t}\)

  • \(h_{t-1}, c_{t-1}, r_{t-1}\) represent the hidden state, cell state and projected output at timestep \(t-1\) , respectively

  • \(\widetilde{c_t}\) represents the candidate cell state

  • \(i_t\) , \(f_t\) and \(o_t\) represent input gate, forget gate, output gate, respectively

  • \(W\) represents weight (e.g., \(W_{ix}\) is the weight of a linear transformation of input \(x_{t}\) when calculating input gate \(i_t\) )

  • \(b\) represents bias (e.g., \(b_{i}\) is the bias of input gate)

  • \(\sigma\) represents nonlinear activation function for gate, default sigmoid

  • \(\odot\) represents the Hadamard product of a matrix, i.e. multiplying the elements of the same position for two matrices with the same dimension to get another matrix with the same dimension

  • input (Variable) – The input of dynamic_lstmp layer, which supports variable-time length input sequence. It is a multi-dimensional LODTensor of shape \([T, 4*hidden\_size]\) . Data type is float32 or float64.

  • size (int) – must be 4 * hidden_size.

  • proj_size (int) – The size of projection output.

  • param_attr (ParamAttr, optional) –

    Parameter attribute of weight. If it is None, the default weight parameter attribute is used. Please refer to ref:api_fluid_ParamAttr’ . If the user needs to set this parameter, the dimension must be :math:`[hidden_size, 4*hidden_size] . Default: None.

    • Weights = \(\{ W_{cr},W_{ir},W_{fr},W_{or} \}\) , the shape is [P, 4*hidden_size] , where P is the projection size.

    • Projection weight = \(\{ W_{rh} \}\) , the shape is [hidden_size, P].

  • bias_attr (ParamAttr, optional) –

    The bias attribute for the learnable bias weights, which contains two parts, input-hidden bias weights and peephole connections weights if setting use_peepholes to True. Please refer to ref:`api_fluid_ParamAttr’ . Default: None.
