# MaxPool2D¶

This operation applies 2D max pooling over input feature based on the input, and kernel_size, stride, padding parameters. Input(X) and Output(Out) are in NCHW format, where N is batch size, C is the number of channels, H is the height of the feature, and W is the width of the feature.

Example

• Input:

X shape: $$(N, C, H_{in}, W_{in})$$

• Attr:

kernel_size: ksize

• Output:

Out shape: $$(N, C, H_{out}, W_{out})$$

$Output(N_i, C_j, h, w) = \max_{m=0, \ldots, ksize -1} \max_{n=0, \ldots, ksize-1} Input(N_i, C_j, stride \times h + m, stride \times w + n)$
Parameters
• kernel_size (int|list|tuple) – The pool kernel size. If pool kernel size is a tuple or list, it must contain two integers, (pool_size_Height, pool_size_Width). Otherwise, the pool kernel size will be a square of an int.

• stride (int|list|tuple, optional) – The pool stride size. If pool stride size is a tuple or list, it must contain two integers, (pool_stride_Height, pool_stride_Width). Otherwise, the pool stride size will be a square of an int. Default None, then stride will be equal to the kernel_size.

• ceil_mode (bool, optional) – when True, will use ceil instead of floor to compute the output shape

• return_mask (bool, optional) – Whether to return the max indices along with the outputs.

• data_format (str, optional) – The data format of the input and output data. An optional string from: “NCHW”, “NDHW”. The default is “NCHW”. When it is “NCHW”, the data is stored in the order of: [batch_size, input_channels, input_height, input_width].

• name (str, optional) – For detailed information, please refer to Name. Usually name is no need to set and None by default.

Returns

A callable object of MaxPool2D.

Raises
• ValueError – If padding is a string, but not “SAME” or “VALID”.

• ValueError – If padding is “VALID”, but ceil_mode is True.

• ShapeError – If the output’s shape calculated is not greater than 0.

Shape:
• x(Tensor): The input tensor of max pool2d operator, which is a 4-D tensor. The data type can be float32, float64.

• output(Tensor): The output tensor of max pool2d operator, which is a 4-D tensor. The data type is same as input x.

Examples

import paddle
import numpy as np

# max pool2d
input = paddle.to_tensor(np.random.uniform(-1, 1, [1, 3, 32, 32]).astype(np.float32))
MaxPool2D = nn.MaxPool2D(kernel_size=2,
output = MaxPool2D(input)
# output.shape [1, 3, 16, 16]

output, max_indices = MaxPool2D(input)
# output.shape [1, 3, 16, 16], max_indices.shape [1, 3, 16, 16],

forward ( x )

Defines the computation performed at every call. Should be overridden by all subclasses.

Parameters
• *inputs (tuple) – unpacked tuple arguments

• **kwargs (dict) – unpacked dict arguments
