# sklearn.decomposition.NMF¶

class sklearn.decomposition.NMF(n_components=None, *, init='warn', solver='cd', beta_loss='frobenius', tol=0.0001, max_iter=200, random_state=None, alpha='deprecated', alpha_W=0.0, alpha_H='same', l1_ratio=0.0, verbose=0, shuffle=False, regularization='deprecated')[source]

Non-Negative Matrix Factorization (NMF).

Find two non-negative matrices (W, H) whose product approximates the non- negative matrix X. This factorization can be used for example for dimensionality reduction, source separation or topic extraction.

The objective function is:

\begin{align}\begin{aligned}0.5 * ||X - WH||_{loss}^2\\+ alpha\_W * l1_{ratio} * n\_features * ||vec(W)||_1\\+ alpha\_H * l1_{ratio} * n\_samples * ||vec(H)||_1\\+ 0.5 * alpha\_W * (1 - l1_{ratio}) * n\_features * ||W||_{Fro}^2\\+ 0.5 * alpha\_H * (1 - l1_{ratio}) * n\_samples * ||H||_{Fro}^2\end{aligned}\end{align}

Where:

$$||A||_{Fro}^2 = \sum_{i,j} A_{ij}^2$$ (Frobenius norm)

$$||vec(A)||_1 = \sum_{i,j} abs(A_{ij})$$ (Elementwise L1 norm)

The generic norm $$||X - WH||_{loss}$$ may represent the Frobenius norm or another supported beta-divergence loss. The choice between options is controlled by the beta_loss parameter.

The regularization terms are scaled by n_features for W and by n_samples for H to keep their impact balanced with respect to one another and to the data fit term as independent as possible of the size n_samples of the training set.

The objective function is minimized with an alternating minimization of W and H.

Parameters
n_componentsint, default=None

Number of components, if n_components is not set all features are kept.

init{‘random’, ‘nndsvd’, ‘nndsvda’, ‘nndsvdar’, ‘custom’}, default=None

Method used to initialize the procedure. Default: None. Valid options:

• None: ‘nndsvd’ if n_components <= min(n_samples, n_features), otherwise random.

• 'random': non-negative random matrices, scaled with: sqrt(X.mean() / n_components)

• 'nndsvd': Nonnegative Double Singular Value Decomposition (NNDSVD) initialization (better for sparseness)

• 'nndsvda': NNDSVD with zeros filled with the average of X (better when sparsity is not desired)

• 'nndsvdar' NNDSVD with zeros filled with small random values (generally faster, less accurate alternative to NNDSVDa for when sparsity is not desired)

• 'custom': use custom matrices W and H

solver{‘cd’, ‘mu’}, default=’cd’

Numerical solver to use: ‘cd’ is a Coordinate Descent solver. ‘mu’ is a Multiplicative Update solver.

New in version 0.17: Coordinate Descent solver.

New in version 0.19: Multiplicative Update solver.

beta_lossfloat or {‘frobenius’, ‘kullback-leibler’, ‘itakura-saito’}, default=’frobenius’

Beta divergence to be minimized, measuring the distance between X and the dot product WH. Note that values different from ‘frobenius’ (or 2) and ‘kullback-leibler’ (or 1) lead to significantly slower fits. Note that for beta_loss <= 0 (or ‘itakura-saito’), the input matrix X cannot contain zeros. Used only in ‘mu’ solver.

New in version 0.19.

tolfloat, default=1e-4

Tolerance of the stopping condition.

max_iterint, default=200

Maximum number of iterations before timing out.

random_stateint, RandomState instance or None, default=None

Used for initialisation (when init == ‘nndsvdar’ or ‘random’), and in Coordinate Descent. Pass an int for reproducible results across multiple function calls. See Glossary.

alphafloat, default=0.0

Constant that multiplies the regularization terms. Set it to zero to have no regularization. When using alpha instead of alpha_W and alpha_H, the regularization terms are not scaled by the n_features (resp. n_samples) factors for W (resp. H).

New in version 0.17: alpha used in the Coordinate Descent solver.

Deprecated since version 1.0: The alpha parameter is deprecated in 1.0 and will be removed in 1.2. Use alpha_W and alpha_H instead.

alpha_Wfloat, default=0.0

Constant that multiplies the regularization terms of W. Set it to zero (default) to have no regularization on W.

New in version 1.0.

alpha_Hfloat or “same”, default=”same”

Constant that multiplies the regularization terms of H. Set it to zero to have no regularization on H. If “same” (default), it takes the same value as alpha_W.

New in version 1.0.

l1_ratiofloat, default=0.0

The regularization mixing parameter, with 0 <= l1_ratio <= 1. For l1_ratio = 0 the penalty is an elementwise L2 penalty (aka Frobenius Norm). For l1_ratio = 1 it is an elementwise L1 penalty. For 0 < l1_ratio < 1, the penalty is a combination of L1 and L2.

New in version 0.17: Regularization parameter l1_ratio used in the Coordinate Descent solver.

verboseint, default=0

Whether to be verbose.

shufflebool, default=False

If true, randomize the order of coordinates in the CD solver.

New in version 0.17: shuffle parameter used in the Coordinate Descent solver.

regularization{‘both’, ‘components’, ‘transformation’, None}, default=’both’

Select whether the regularization affects the components (H), the transformation (W), both or none of them.

New in version 0.24.

Deprecated since version 1.0: The regularization parameter is deprecated in 1.0 and will be removed in 1.2. Use alpha_W and alpha_H instead.
