# chainer.initializers.HeNormal¶

class chainer.initializers.HeNormal(scale=1.0, dtype=None)[source]

Initializes array with scaled Gaussian distribution.

Each element of the array is initialized by the value drawn independently from Gaussian distribution whose mean is 0, and standard deviation is $$scale \times \sqrt{\frac{2}{fan_{in}}}$$, where $$fan_{in}$$ is the number of input units.

Reference: He et al., https://arxiv.org/abs/1502.01852

Parameters: scale (float) – A constant that determines the scale of the standard deviation. dtype – Data type specifier.
