The 1D scattering transform
The scattering transform computes a cascade of wavelet transforms alternated with a complex modulus nonlinearity. The scattering transform of a 1D signal may be written as
where
,
, and
.
In the above formulas, denotes convolution in time. The filters and are analytic wavelets with center frequencies and , while is a real lowpass filter centered at the zero frequency.
The Scattering1D class implements the 1D scattering transform for a given set of filters whose parameters are specified at initialization. While the wavelets are fixed, other parameters may be changed after the object is created, such as whether to compute all of , , and or just and .
Given an input np.ndarray x of shape (B, T), where B is the number of signals to transform (the batch size) and T is the length of the signal, we compute its scattering transform by passing it to the scattering method (or calling the alias __call__). Note that B can be one, in which case it may be omitted, giving an input of shape (T,).
# Set the parameters of the scattering transform. J = 6 T = 2 ** 13 Q = 8 # Generate a sample signal. x = np.random.randn(T) # Define a Scattering1D object. S = Scattering1D(J, T, Q) # Calculate the scattering transform. Sx = S.scattering(x) # Equivalently, use the alias. Sx = S(x)
Above, the length of the signal is , while the maximum scale of the scattering transform is set to . The timefrequency resolution of the firstorder wavelets is set to Q = 8 wavelets per octave. The secondorder wavelets always have one wavelet per octave.
 Jint

The number of firstorder wavelets per octave (secondorder wavelets are fixed to one wavelet per octave). Defaults to 1.
 max_orderint, optional
The maximum order of scattering coefficients to compute. Must be either 1 or 2. Defaults to 2.
 averageboolean, optional
Determines whether the output is averaged in time or not. The averaged output corresponds to the standard scattering transform, while the unaveraged output skips the last convolution by . This parameter may be modified after object creation. Defaults to True.
 oversamplinginteger >= 0, optional
Controls the oversampling factor relative to the default as a power of two. Since the convolving by wavelets (or lowpass filters) and taking the modulus reduces the highfrequency content of the signal, we can subsample to save space and improve performance. However, this may reduce precision in the calculation. If this is not desirable, oversampling can be set to a large value to prevent too much subsampling. This parameter may be modified after object creation. Defaults to 0.
 vectorizeboolean, optional
Determines wheter to return a vectorized scattering transform (that is, a large array containing the output) or a dictionary (where each entry corresponds to a separate scattering coefficient). This parameter may be modified after object creation. Deprecated in favor of out_type (see below). Defaults to True.
 out_typestr, optional
The format of the output of a scattering transform. If set to ‘list’, then the output is a list containing each individual scattering coefficient with meta information. Otherwise, if set to ‘array’, the output is a large array containing the concatenation of all scattering coefficients. Defaults to ‘array’.
 Jint
The maximum logscale of the scattering transform. In other words, the maximum scale is given by 2 ** J.
 shapeint
The length of the input signals.
 Qint
The number of firstorder wavelets per octave (secondorder wavelets are fixed to one wavelet per octave).

 max_orderint
The maximum scattering order of the transform.
 averageboolean
Controls whether the output should be averaged (the standard scattering transform) or not (resulting in wavelet modulus coefficients). Note that to obtain unaveraged output, the vectorize flag must be set to False or out_type must be set to ‘list’.
 oversamplingint
The number of powers of two to oversample the output compared to the default subsampling rate determined from the filters.
 vectorizeboolean
Controls whether the output should be vectorized into a single Tensor or collected into a dictionary. Deprecated in favor of out_type. For more details, see the documentation for scattering.
 out_typestr
Specifices the output format of the transform, which is currently one of ‘array’ or ‘list’. If ‘array’, the output is a large array containing the scattering coefficients. If ‘list’, the output is a list of dictionaries, each containing a scattering coefficient along with meta information. For more information, see the documentation for scattering.

scattering
(x)¶ Apply the scattering transform
Given an input np.ndarray of size (B, T), where B is the batch size (it can be potentially an integer or a shape) and T is the length of the individual signals, this function computes its scattering transform. If the vectorize flag is set to True (or if it is not available in this frontend), the output is in the form of a np.ndarray or size (B, C, T1), where T1 is the signal length after subsampling to the scale (with the appropriate oversampling factor to reduce aliasing), and C is the number of scattering coefficients. If vectorize is set False, however, the output is a dictionary containing C keys, each a tuple whose length corresponds to the scattering order and whose elements are the sequence of filter indices used.
Note that the vectorize flag has been deprecated in favor of the out_type parameter. If this is set to ‘array’ (the default), the vectorize flag is still respected, but if not, out_type takes precedence. The two current output types are ‘array’ and ‘list’. The former gives the type of output described above. If set to ‘list’, however, the output is a list of dictionaries, each dictionary corresponding to a scattering coefficient and its associated meta information. The coefficient is stored under the ‘coef’ key, while other keys contain additional information, such as ‘j’ (the scale of the filter used) and ‘n’ (the filter index).
Furthermore, if the average flag is set to False, these outputs are not averaged, but are simply the wavelet modulus coefficients of the filters.
 Parameters
x (np.ndarray) – An input np.ndarray of size (B, T).
 Returns
S – If out_type is ‘array’ and the vectorize flag is True, the output is an np.ndarray containing the scattering coefficients, while if vectorize is False, it is a dictionary indexed by tuples of filter indices. If out_type is ‘list’, the output is a list of dictionaries as described above.
 Return type

Specifices the output format of the transform, which is currently one of ‘array’ or ‘list’. If ‘array’, the output is a large array containing the scattering coefficients. If ‘list’, the output is a list of dictionaries, each containing a scattering coefficient along with meta information. For more information, see the documentation for scattering.

load_filters

scattering
(x)¶ Apply the scattering transform
Given an input torch.Tensor of size (B, T), where B is the batch size (it can be potentially an integer or a shape) and T is the length of the individual signals, this function computes its scattering transform. If the vectorize flag is set to True (or if it is not available in this frontend), the output is in the form of a torch.Tensor or size (B, C, T1), where T1 is the signal length after subsampling to the scale (with the appropriate oversampling factor to reduce aliasing), and C is the number of scattering coefficients. If vectorize is set False, however, the output is a dictionary containing C keys, each a tuple whose length corresponds to the scattering order and whose elements are the sequence of filter indices used.
Note that the vectorize flag has been deprecated in favor of the out_type parameter. If this is set to ‘array’ (the default), the vectorize flag is still respected, but if not, out_type takes precedence. The two current output types are ‘array’ and ‘list’. The former gives the type of output described above. If set to ‘list’, however, the output is a list of dictionaries, each dictionary corresponding to a scattering coefficient and its associated meta information. The coefficient is stored under the ‘coef’ key, while other keys contain additional information, such as ‘j’ (the scale of the filter used) and ‘n’ (the filter index).
Furthermore, if the average flag is set to False, these outputs are not averaged, but are simply the wavelet modulus coefficients of the filters.
 Parameters
x (torch.Tensor) – An input torch.Tensor of size (B, T).
 Returns
S – If out_type is ‘array’ and the vectorize flag is True, the output is a torch.Tensor containing the scattering coefficients, while if vectorize is False, it is a dictionary indexed by tuples of filter indices. If out_type is ‘list’, the output is a list of dictionaries as described above.

where denotes the convolution (in space), is a lowpass filter, is a family of bandpass filters and is another family of bandpass filters. Only Morlet filters are used in this implementation. Convolutions are efficiently performed in the Fourier domain.
This class inherits from torch.nn.Module. As a result, it has all the same capabilities, including transferring the object to the GPU using the cuda or to methods. This object would then take GPU tensors as input and output the scattering coefficients of those tensors.
Example
# Set the parameters of the scattering transform. J = 3 M, N = 32, 32 # Generate a sample signal. x = torch.randn(M, N) # Define a Scattering2D object. S = Scattering2D(J, (M, N)) # Calculate the scattering transform. Sx = S.scattering(x) # Equivalently, use the alias. Sx = S.forward(x)
 Parameters
J (int) – Log2 of the scattering scale.
shape (tuple of ints) – Spatial support (M, N) of the input
L (int, optional) – Number of angles used for the wavelet transform. Defaults to 8.
max_order (int, optional) – The maximum order of scattering coefficients to compute. Must be either 1 or 2. Defaults to 2.
pre_pad (boolean, optional) – Controls the padding: if set to False, a symmetric padding is applied on the signal. If set to True, the software will assume the signal was padded externally. Defaults to False.
backend (object, optional) – Controls the backend which is combined with the frontend.
out_type (str, optional) – The format of the output of a scattering transform. If set to ‘list’, then the output is a list containing each individual scattering path with meta information.

The 1D scattering transform
The scattering transform computes a cascade of wavelet transforms alternated with a complex modulus nonlinearity. The scattering transform of a 1D signal may be written as
where
,
, and
.
In the above formulas, denotes convolution in time. The filters and are analytic wavelets with center frequencies and , while is a real lowpass filter centered at the zero frequency.
The Scattering1D class implements the 1D scattering transform for a given set of filters whose parameters are specified at initialization. While the wavelets are fixed, other parameters may be changed after the object is created, such as whether to compute all of , , and or just and .
This class inherits from tf.Module. As a result, it has all the same capabilities as a standard TensorFlow Module.
Given an input tf.Tensor x of shape (B, T), where B is the number of signals to transform (the batch size) and T is the length of the signal, we compute its scattering transform by passing it to the scattering method (or calling the alias __call__). Note that B can be one, in which case it may be omitted, giving an input of shape (T,).
# Set the parameters of the scattering transform. J = 6 T = 2 ** 13 Q = 8 # Generate a sample signal. x = np.random.randn(T) # Define a Scattering1D object. S = Scattering1D(J, T, Q) # Calculate the scattering transform. Sx = S.scattering(x) # Equivalently, use the alias. Sx = S(x)

 oversamplinginteger >= 0, optional
Controls the oversampling factor relative to the default as a power of two. Since the convolving by wavelets (or lowpass filters) and taking the modulus reduces the highfrequency content of the signal, we can subsample to save space and improve performance. However, this may reduce precision in the calculation. If this is not desirable, oversampling can be set to a large value to prevent too much subsampling. This parameter may be modified after object creation. Defaults to 0.
 vectorizeboolean, optional
Determines wheter to return a vectorized scattering transform (that is, a large array containing the output) or a dictionary (where each entry corresponds to a separate scattering coefficient). This parameter may be modified after object creation. Deprecated in favor of out_type (see below). Defaults to True.
 out_typestr, optional

 oversamplingint
The number of powers of two to oversample the output compared to the default subsampling rate determined from the filters.
 vectorizeboolean
Controls whether the output should be vectorized into a single Tensor or collected into a dictionary. Deprecated in favor of out_type. For more details, see the documentation for scattering.
