Graph.random_normal(shape, mean, standard_deviation, seed=None, *, name=None)

Creates a sample of normally distributed random numbers.

Parameters
• shape (tuple or list) – The shape of the sampled random numbers.

• mean (int or float) – The mean of the normal distribution.

• standard_deviation (int or float) – The standard deviation of the normal distribution.

• seed (int, optional) – A seed for the random number generator. Defaults to None, in which case a random value for the seed is used.

• name (str, optional) – The name of the node.

Returns

A tensor containing a sample of normally distributed random numbers with shape shape.

Return type

Tensor
