Abelian Neural Networks

02/24/2021 ∙ by Kenshin Abe, et al. ∙ 0

We study the problem of modeling a binary operation that satisfies some algebraic requirements. We first construct a neural network architecture for Abelian group operations and derive a universal approximation property. Then, we extend it to Abelian semigroup operations using the characterization of associative symmetric polynomials. Both models take advantage of the analytic invertibility of invertible neural networks. For each case, by repeating the binary operations, we can represent a function for multiset input thanks to the algebraic structure. Naturally, our multiset architecture has size-generalization ability, which has not been obtained in existing methods. Further, we present modeling the Abelian group operation itself is useful in a word analogy task. We train our models over fixed word embeddings and demonstrate improved performance over the original word2vec and another naive learning method.
