Functions
#
Bijectors._link_chol_lkj
— Method.
function _link_chol_lkj(w)
Link function for cholesky factor.
An alternative and maybe more efficient implementation was considered:
for i=2:K, j=(i+1):K
z[i, j] = (w[i, j] / w[i1, j]) * (z[i1, j] / sqrt(1  z[i1, j]^2))
end
But this implementation will not work when w[i1, j] = 0. Though it is a zero measure set, unit matrix initialization will not work.
For equivelence, following explanations is given by @torfjelde:
For (i, j)
in the loop below, we define
z₍ᵢ₋₁, ⱼ₎ = w₍ᵢ₋₁,ⱼ₎ * ∏ₖ₌₁ⁱ⁻² (1 / √(1  z₍ₖ,ⱼ₎²))
and so
z₍ᵢ,ⱼ₎ = w₍ᵢ,ⱼ₎ * ∏ₖ₌₁ⁱ⁻¹ (1 / √(1  z₍ₖ,ⱼ₎²))
= (w₍ᵢ,ⱼ₎ * / √(1  z₍ᵢ₋₁,ⱼ₎²)) * (∏ₖ₌₁ⁱ⁻² 1 / √(1  z₍ₖ,ⱼ₎²))
= (w₍ᵢ,ⱼ₎ * / √(1  z₍ᵢ₋₁,ⱼ₎²)) * (w₍ᵢ₋₁,ⱼ₎ * ∏ₖ₌₁ⁱ⁻² 1 / √(1  z₍ₖ,ⱼ₎²)) / w₍ᵢ₋₁,ⱼ₎
= (w₍ᵢ,ⱼ₎ * / √(1  z₍ᵢ₋₁,ⱼ₎²)) * (z₍ᵢ₋₁,ⱼ₎ / w₍ᵢ₋₁,ⱼ₎)
= (w₍ᵢ,ⱼ₎ / w₍ᵢ₋₁,ⱼ₎) * (z₍ᵢ₋₁,ⱼ₎ / √(1  z₍ᵢ₋₁,ⱼ₎²))
which is the above implementation.

Bijectors.compute_r
— Method.
compute_r(y_minus_z0::AbstractVector{<:Real}, α, α_plus_β_hat)
Compute the unique solution $r$ to the equation
$$ y_minus_z0_2 = r \left(1 + \frac{α_plus_β_hat  α}{α + r}\right) $$
subject to $r ≥ 0$ and $r ≠ α$.
Since $α > 0$ and $α_plus_β_hat > 0$, the solution is unique and given by
$$ r = (\sqrt{(α_plus_β_hat  γ)^2 + 4 α γ}  (α_plus_β_hat  γ)) / 2, $$
where $γ = y_minus_z0_2$. For details see appendix A.2 of the reference.

#
Bijectors.couple
— Method.
Returns the coupling law constructed from x
.
#
Bijectors.coupling
— Method.
Returns the constructor of the coupling law.
#
Bijectors.find_alpha
— Method.
find_alpha(wt_y, wt_u_hat, b)
Compute an (approximate) realvalued solution $α̂$ to the equation
$$ wt_y = α + wt_u_hat tanh(α + b) $$
The uniqueness of the solution is guaranteed since $wt_u_hat ≥ 1$. For details see appendix A.1 of the reference.
Initial bracket
For all $α$, we have
$$ α  wt_u_hat  wt_y \leq α + wt_u_hat tanh(α + b)  wt_y \leq α + wt_u_hat  wt_y. $$
Thus
$$ α̂  wt_u_hat  wt_y \leq 0 \leq α̂ + wt_u_hat  wt_y, $$
which implies $α̂ ∈ [wt_y  wt_u_hat, wt_y + wt_u_hat]$. To avoid floating point issues if $α̂ = wt_y ± wt_u_hat$, we use the more conservative interval $[wt_y  2 wt_u_hat, wt_y + 2wt_u_hat]$ as initial bracket, at the cost of one additional iteration step.

— Method.
get_u_hat(u::AbstractVector{<:Real}, w::AbstractVector{<:Real})
Return a tuple of vector $û$ that guarantees invertibility of the planar layer, and scalar $wᵀ û$.
Mathematical background
According to appendix A.1, vector $û$ defined by
$$ û(w, u) = u + (\log(1 + \exp{(wᵀu)})  1  wᵀu) \frac{w}{w²} $$
guarantees that the planar layer $f(z) = z + û tanh(wᵀz + b)$ is invertible for all $w, u ∈ ℝᵈ$ and $b ∈ ℝ$. We can rewrite $û$ as
$$ û = u + (\log(1 + \exp{(wᵀu)})  1) \frac{w}{w²}. $$
Additionally, we obtain
$$ wᵀû = wᵀu + \log(1 + \exp{(wᵀu)})  1 = \log(1 + \exp{(wᵀu)})  1. $$

— Method.
isclosedform(b::Bijector)::bool
isclosedform(b⁻¹::Inverse{<:Bijector})::bool
Returns true
or false
depending on whether or not evaluation of b
has a closedform implementation.
Most bijectors have closedform evaluations, but there are cases where this is not the case. For example the inverse evaluation of PlanarLayer
requires an iterative procedure to evaluate.
#

#
Bijectors.logabsdetjac

logabsdetjac(b::Bijector, x)
logabsdetjac(ib::Inverse{<:Bijector}, y)
Computes the log(abs(det(J(b(x))))) where J is the jacobian of the transform. Similarily for the inversetransform.
Default implementation for Inverse{<:Bijector}
is implemented as  logabsdetjac
of original Bijector
.
#
Bijectors.logabsdetjacinv
— Method.
logabsdetjacinv(b::Bijector, y)
Just an alias for logabsdetjac(inverse(b), y)
.
#
Bijectors.logabsdetjacinv
— Method.
logabsdetjacinv(td::UnivariateTransformed, y::Real)
logabsdetjacinv(td::MultivariateTransformed, y::AbstractVector{<:Real})

of the inverse transformation, since rand(td)
returns the transformed random variable.
#

method to potentially reuse computation and returns a tuple (logpdf, logabsdetjac)
.
#

whose support are ordered vectors, i.e., vectors with increasingly ordered elements.
#
Bijectors.partition
— Method.
partition(m::PartitionMask, x)
Partitions x
into 3 disjoint subvectors.
#
Bijectors.transformed
— Method.
transformed(d::Distribution)
transformed(d::Distribution, b::Bijector)
Couples distribution d
with the bijector b
by returning a TransformedDistribution
.
If no bijector is provided, i.e. transformed(d)
is called, then transformed(d, bijector(d))
is returned.
#
ChangesOfVariables.with_logabsdet_jacobian
— Method.
with_logabsdet_jacobian(b::Bijector, x)
Computes both transform
and logabsdetjac
in one forward pass, and returns a named tuple (b(x), logabsdetjac(b, x))
.
This defaults to the call above, but often one can reuse computation in the computation of the forward pass and the computation of the logabsdetjac
. forward
allows the user to take advantange of such efficiencies, if they exist.
Types
#
Bijectors.ADBijector
— Type.
Abstract type for a Bijector{N}
making use of autodifferentation (AD) to implement jacobian
and, by impliciation, logabsdetjac
.
#
Bijectors.AbstractBijector
— Type.
Abstract type for a bijector.
#
Bijectors.Bijector
— Type.
Abstract type of bijectors with fixed dimensionality.
#
Bijectors.Composed
— Type.
Composed(ts::A)
∘(b1::Bijector{N}, b2::Bijector{N})::Composed{<:Tuple}
composel(ts::Bijector{N}...)::Composed{<:Tuple}
composer(ts::Bijector{N}...)::Composed{<:Tuple}
where A
refers to either
Tuple{Vararg{<:Bijector{N}}}
: a tuple of bijectors of dimensionalityN
AbstractArray{<:Bijector{N}}
: an array of bijectors of dimensionalityN
A Bijector
representing composition of bijectors. composel
and composer
results in a Composed
for which application occurs from lefttoright and righttoleft, respectively.
Note that all the alternative ways of constructing a Composed
returns a Tuple
of bijectors. This ensures typestability of implementations of all relating methdos, e.g. inverse
.
If you want to use an Array
as the container instead you can do
Composed([b1, b2, ...])
In general this is not advised since you lose typestability, but there might be cases where this is desired, e.g. if you have a insanely large number of bijectors to compose.
Examples
Simple example
Let's consider a simple example of Exp
:
>julia> using Bijectors: Exp
julia> b = Exp()
Exp{0}()
julia> b ∘ b
Composed{Tuple{Exp{0},Exp{0}},0}((Exp{0}(), Exp{0}()))
julia> (b ∘ b)(1.0) == exp(exp(1.0)) # evaluation
true
julia> inverse(b ∘ b)(exp(exp(1.0))) == 1.0 # inversion
true
julia> logabsdetjac(b ∘ b, 1.0) # determinant of jacobian
3.718281828459045
Notes
Order
It's important to note that ∘
does what is expected mathematically, which means that the bijectors are applied to the input righttoleft, e.g. first applying b2
and then b1
:
(b1 ∘ b2)(x) == b1(b2(x)) # => true
But in the Composed
struct itself, we store the bijectors lefttoright, so that
cb1 = b1 ∘ b2 # => Composed.ts == (b2, b1)
cb2 = composel(b2, b1) # => Composed.ts == (b2, b1)
cb1(x) == cb2(x) == b1(b2(x)) # => true
Structure
∘
will result in "flatten" the composition structure while composel
and composer
preserve the compositional structure. This is most easily seen by an example:
>julia> b = Exp()
Exp{0}()
julia> cb1 = b ∘ b; cb2 = b ∘ b;
julia> (cb1 ∘ cb2).ts # <= different
(Exp{0}(), Exp{0}(), Exp{0}(), Exp{0}())
julia> (cb1 ∘ cb2).ts isa NTuple{4, Exp{0}}
true
julia> Bijectors.composer(cb1, cb2).ts
(Composed{Tuple{Exp{0},Exp{0}},0}((Exp{0}(), Exp{0}())), Composed{Tuple{Exp{0},Exp{0}},0}((Exp{0}(), Exp{0}())))
julia> Bijectors.composer(cb1, cb2).ts isa Tuple{Composed, Composed}
true
#
Bijectors.CorrBijector
— Type.
CorrBijector <: Bijector{2}
A bijector implementation of Stan's parametrization method for Correlation matrix: https://mcstan.org/docs/2_23/referencemanual/correlationmatrixtransformsection.html
Basically, a unconstrained strictly upper triangular matrix y
is transformed to a correlation matrix by following readable but not that efficient form:
K = size(y, 1)
z = tanh.(y)
for j=1:K, i=1:K
if i>j
w[i,j] = 0
elseif 1==i==j
w[i,j] = 1
elseif 1<i==j
w[i,j] = prod(sqrt(1 . z[1:i1, j].^2))
elseif 1==i<j
w[i,j] = z[i,j]
elseif 1<i<j
w[i,j] = z[i,j] * prod(sqrt(1 . z[1:i1, j].^2))
end
end
It is easy to see that every column is a unit vector, for example:
w3' w3 ==
w[1,3]^2 + w[2,3]^2 + w[3,3]^2 ==
z[1,3]^2 + (z[2,3] * sqrt(1  z[1,3]^2))^2 + (sqrt(1z[1,3]^2) * sqrt(1z[2,3]^2))^2 ==
z[1,3]^2 + z[2,3]^2 * (1z[1,3]^2) + (1z[1,3]^2) * (1z[2,3]^2) ==
z[1,3]^2 + z[2,3]^2  z[2,3]^2 * z[1,3]^2 + 1 z[1,3]^2  z[2,3]^2 + z[1,3]^2 * z[2,3]^2 ==
1
And diagonal elements are positive, so w
is a cholesky factor for a positive matrix.
x = w' * w
Consider block matrix representation for x
x = [w1'; w2'; ... wn'] * [w1 w2 ... wn] ==
[w1'w1 w1'w2 ... w1'wn;
w2'w1 w2'w2 ... w2'wn;
...
]
The diagonal elements are given by wk'wk = 1
, thus x
is a correlation matrix.
Every step is invertible, so this is a bijection(bijector).
Note: The implementation doesn't follow their "manageable expression" directly, because their equation seems wrong (7/30/2020). Insteadly it follows definition above the "manageable expression" directly, which is also described in above doc.
#
Bijectors.Coupling

representing the inverse transform of b
.
#
Bijectors.LeakyReLU

LeakyReLU{T, N}(α::T) <: Bijector{N}
Defines the invertible mapping
x ↦ x if x ≥ 0 else αx
where α > 0.
#
Bijectors.NamedBijector
— Type.
NamedBijector <: AbstractNamedBijector
Wraps a NamedTuple
of key > Bijector
pairs, implementing evaluation, inversion, etc.
Examples
>julia> using Bijectors: NamedBijector, Scale, Exp
julia> b = NamedBijector((a = Scale(2.0), b = Exp()));
julia> x = (a = 1., b = 0., c = 42.);

(a = 2.0, b = 1.0, c = 42.0)
#
Bijectors.NamedComposition
— Type.
NamedComposition <: AbstractNamedBijector
Wraps a tuple of array of AbstractNamedBijector
and implements their composition.
This is very similar to Composed
for Bijector
, with the exception that we do not require the inputs to have the same "dimension", which in this case refers to the symbols for the NamedTuple
that this takes as input.

#
Bijectors.NamedCoupling
— Type.
NamedCoupling{target, deps, F} <: AbstractNamedBijector
Implements a coupling layer for named bijectors.

.

#
Bijectors.OrderedBijector
— Type.
OrderedBijector()
A bijector mapping ordered vectors in ℝᵈ to unordered vectors in ℝᵈ.

#
Bijectors.PartitionMask
— Type.
PartitionMask{A}(A_1::A, A_2::A, A_3::A) where {A}
This is used to partition and recombine a vector into 3 disjoint "subvectors".
Implements
partition(m::PartitionMask, x)
: partitionsx
into 3 disjoint "subvectors"combine(m::PartitionMask, x_1, x_2, x_3)
: combines 3 disjoint vectors into a single one
Note that PartitionMask
is not a Bijector
. It is indeed a bijection, but does not follow the Bijector
interface.
Its main use is in Coupling
where we want to partition the input into 3 parts, one part to transform, one part to map into the parameterspace of the transform applied to the first part, and the last part of the vector is not used for anything.
Examples
>julia> using Bijectors: PartitionMask, partition, combine
julia> m = PartitionMask(3, [1], [2]) # <= assumes inputlength 3
PartitionMask{Bool,SparseArrays.SparseMatrixCSC{Bool,Int64}}(
[1, 1] = true,
[2, 1] = true,
[3, 1] = true)
julia> # Partition into 3 parts; the last part is inferred to be indices `[3, ]` from
# the fact that `[1]` and `[2]` does not make up all indices in `1:3`.
x1, x2, x3 = partition(m, [1., 2., 3.])
([1.0], [2.0], [3.0])
julia> # Recombines the partitions into a vector
combine(m, x1, x2, x3)
3element Array{Float64,1}:
1.0
2.0
3.0
Note that the underlying SparseMatrix
is using Bool
as the element type. We can also specify this to be some other type using the sp_type
keyword:
>julia> m = PartitionMask{Float32}(3, [1], [2])
PartitionMask{Float32,SparseArrays.SparseMatrixCSC{Float32,Int64}}(
[1, 1] = 1.0,
[2, 1] = 1.0,
[3, 1] = 1.0)
#
Bijectors.PartitionMask
— Method.
PartitionMask(n::Int, indices)
Assumes you want to split the vector, where indices
refer to the parts of the vector you want to apply the bijector to.
#
Bijectors.Permute
— Type.
Permute{A} <: Bijector{1}
A bijector implementation of a permutation. The permutation is performed using a matrix of type A
. There are a couple of different ways to construct Permute
:
Permute([0 1; 1 0]) # will map [1, 2] => [2, 1]
Permute([2, 1]) # will map [1, 2] => [2, 1]
Permute(2, 2 => 1, 1 => 2) # will map [1, 2] => [2, 1]
Permute(2, [1, 2] => [2, 1]) # will map [1, 2] => [2, 1]
If this is not clear, the examples might be of help.
Examples

Bijectors.RationalQuadraticSpline
— Type.
RationalQuadraticSpline{T, 0} <: Bijector{0}
RationalQuadraticSpline{T, 1} <: Bijector{1}
Implementation of the Rational Quadratic Spline flow [1].
 Outside of the interval
[minimum(widths), maximum(widths)]
, this mapping is given by the identity map.  Inside the interval it's given by a monotonic spline (i.e. monotonic polynomials connected at intermediate points) with endpoints fixed so as to continuously transform into the identity map.
For the sake of efficiency, there are separate implementations for 0dimensional and 1dimensional inputs.
Notes
There are two constructors for RationalQuadraticSpline
:
RationalQuadraticSpline(widths, heights, derivatives)
: it is assumed thatwidths
,
heights
, and derivatives
satisfy the constraints that makes this a valid bijector, i.e.
widths
: monotonically increasing andlength(widths) == K
,heights
: monotonically increasing andlength(heights) == K
,derivatives
: nonnegative andderivatives[1] == derivatives[end] == 1
.RationalQuadraticSpline(widths, heights, derivatives, B)
: other than than the lengths, no assumptions are made on parameters. Therefore we will transform the parameters s.t.:widths_new
∈ [B, B]ᴷ⁺¹, whereK == length(widths)
,heights_new
∈ [B, B]ᴷ⁺¹, whereK == length(heights)
,derivatives_new
∈ (0, ∞)ᴷ⁺¹ withderivatives_new[1] == derivates_new[end] == 1
, where(K  1) == length(derivatives)
.
Examples
Univariate
>julia> using Bijectors: RationalQuadraticSpline
julia> K = 3; B = 2;
julia> # Monotonic spline on '[B, B]' with `K` intermediate knots/"connection points".
b = RationalQuadraticSpline(randn(K), randn(K), randn(K  1), B);
julia> b(0.5) # inside of `[B, B]` → transformed
1.412300607463467
julia> b(5.) # outside of `[B, B]` → not transformed
5.0
Or we can use the constructor with the parameters correctly constrained:
>julia> b = RationalQuadraticSpline(b.widths, b.heights, b.derivatives);
julia> b(0.5) # inside of `[B, B]` → transformed
1.412300607463467
Multivariate
>julia> d = 2; K = 3; B = 2;
julia> b = RationalQuadraticSpline(randn(d, K), randn(d, K), randn(d, K  1), B);
julia> b([1., 1.])

Bijectors.Stacked
— Type.
Stacked(bs)
Stacked(bs, ranges)
stack(bs::Bijector{0}...) # where `0` means 0dim `Bijector`
A Bijector
which stacks bijectors together which can then be applied to a vector where bs[i]::Bijector
is applied to x[ranges[i]]::UnitRange{Int}
.
Arguments

bs
can be either aTuple
or anAbstractArray
of 0 and/or 1dimensional bijectors If
bs
is aTuple
, implementations are typestable using generated functions  If
bs
is anAbstractArray
, implementations are not typestable and use iterative methods
 If

ranges
needs to be an iterable consisting ofUnitRange{Int}
length(bs) == length(ranges)
needs to be true.
Examples
b1 = Logit(0.0, 1.0)
b2 = Identity{0}()
b = stack(b1, b2)
b([0.0, 1.0]) == [b1(0.0), 1.0] # => true
