MultiMarginLoss
(p: int = 1, margin: float = 1.0, weight: Optional[torch.Tensor] = None, size_average=None, reduce=None, reduction: str = 'mean')[source]¶ Creates a criterion that optimizes a multiclass classification hinge loss (marginbased loss) between input $x$ (a 2D minibatch Tensor) and output $y$ (which is a 1D tensor of target class indices, $0 \leq y \leq \text{x.size}(1)1$ ):
For each minibatch sample, the loss in terms of the 1D input $x$ and scalar output $y$ is:
$\text{loss}(x, y) = \frac{\sum_i \max(0, \text{margin}  x[y] + x[i]))^p}{\text{x.size}(0)}$where $x \in \left\{0, \; \cdots , \; \text{x.size}(0)  1\right\}$ and $i \neq y$ .
Optionally, you can give nonequal weighting on the classes by passing a 1D
weight
tensor into the constructor.The loss function then becomes:
$\text{loss}(x, y) = \frac{\sum_i \max(0, w[y] * (\text{margin}  x[y] + x[i]))^p)}{\text{x.size}(0)}$ Parameters
p (int, optional) – Has a default value of $1$ . $1$ and $2$ are the only supported values.
margin (float, optional) – Has a default value of $1$ .
weight (Tensor, optional) – a manual rescaling weight given to each class. If given, it has to be a Tensor of size C. Otherwise, it is treated as if having all ones.
size_average (bool, optional) – Deprecated (see
reduction
). By default, the losses are averaged over each loss element in the batch. Note that for some losses, there are multiple elements per sample. If the fieldsize_average
is set toFalse
, the losses are instead summed for each minibatch. Ignored when reduce isFalse
. Default:True
reduce (bool, optional) – Deprecated (see
reduction
). By default, the losses are averaged or summed over observations for each minibatch depending onsize_average
. Whenreduce
isFalse
, returns a loss per batch element instead and ignoressize_average
. Default:True
reduction (string, optional) – Specifies the reduction to apply to the output:
'none'
'mean'
'sum'
.'none'
: no reduction will be applied,'mean'
: the sum of the output will be divided by the number of elements in the output,'sum'
: the output will be summed. Note:size_average
andreduce
are in the process of being deprecated, and in the meantime, specifying either of those two args will overridereduction
. Default:'mean'
