chainer.functions.squared_error(x0, x1)[source]

Squared error function.

This function computes the squared error between two variables:

$(x_0 - x_1)^2$

where operation is done in elementwise manner. Note that the error is not scaled by 1/2:

Parameters: x0 (Variable or numpy.ndarray or cupy.ndarray) – Input variable. x1 (Variable or numpy.ndarray or cupy.ndarray) – Input variable. A variable holding an array representing the squared error of two inputs. Variable
