class torch.optim.lr_scheduler.SequentialLR(optimizer, schedulers, milestones, last_epoch=-1, verbose='deprecated')[source]

Receives the list of schedulers that is expected to be called sequentially during optimization process and milestone points that provides exact intervals to reflect which scheduler is supposed to be called at a given epoch.

  • optimizer (Optimizer) – Wrapped optimizer.

  • schedulers (list) – List of chained schedulers.

  • milestones (list) – List of integers that reflects milestone points.

  • last_epoch (int) – The index of last epoch. Default: -1.

  • verbose (bool) –

    Does nothing.

    Deprecated since version 2.2: verbose is deprecated. Please use get_last_lr() to access the learning rate.

>>> # lr = 0.81    if epoch == 3
>>> # lr = 0.729   if epoch == 4
>>> scheduler1 = ConstantLR(optimizer, factor=0.1, total_iters=2)

>>>     scheduler.step()

Return last computed learning rate by current scheduler.


Loads the schedulers state.


state_dict (dict) – scheduler state. Should be an object returned from a call to state_dict().

print_lr(is_verbose, group, lr, epoch=None)

Display the current learning rate.


Returns the state of the scheduler as a dict.

It contains an entry for every variable in self.__dict__ which is not the optimizer. The wrapped scheduler states will also be saved.
