sequence convergence - python

Let $\{p_i : i \in \mathbb{Z}\}$ be an i.i.d sequence with $p_i \in (0, 1)$. Fix this random environment, then consider the random walk $$P[ X_{n+1} = i + 1 | X_n = i] = 1 − P[ X_{n+1} = i − 1 | X_n =...

Weights not converging while cost function has converged in neural networks

My cost/loss function drops drastically and approaches 0, which looks a sign of convergence. But the weights are still changing in a visible way, a lot faster than the cost function. Should I ensure ...

Why this model does not converge in keras?

This case has an underlying story but I have essentially boiled it down to the simplest possible re-producible example I could. Essentially let us think that I have up to 1000 nodes and each node ...
