[docs]class RMSPropOptimizer(AdagradOptimizer): r"""Root mean squared propagation optimizer. The root mean square progation optimizer is a modified :class:`Adagrad optimizer <pennylane.optmimize.AdagradOptimizer>`, with a decay of learning rate adaptation. Extensions of the Adagrad optimization method generally start the sum :math:`a` over past gradients in the denominator of the learning rate at a finite :math:`t'` with :math:`0 < t' < t`, or decay past gradients to avoid an ever-decreasing learning rate. Root Mean Square propagation is such an adaptation, where .. math:: a_i^{(t+1)} = \gamma a_i^{(t)} + (1-\gamma) (\partial_{x_i} f(x^{(t)}))^2. Args: stepsize (float): the user-defined hyperparameter :math:`\eta` used in the Adagrad optmization decay (float): the learning rate decay :math:`\gamma` eps (float): offset :math:`\epsilon` added for numerical stability (see :class:`Adagrad <pennylane.optmimize.AdagradOptimizer>`) """ def __init__(self, stepsize=0.01, decay=0.9, eps=1e-8): super().__init__(stepsize) self.decay = decay self.eps = eps
