jax.tree_util.register_pytree_node(nodetype, flatten_func, unflatten_func)[source]#

Extends the set of types that are considered internal nodes in pytrees.

See example usage.

  • nodetype (type[T]) – a Python type to treat as an internal pytree node.

  • flatten_func (Callable[[T], tuple[_Children, _AuxData]]) – a function to be used during flattening, taking a value of type nodetype and returning a pair, with (1) an iterable for the children to be flattened recursively, and (2) some hashable auxiliary data to be stored in the treedef and to be passed to the unflatten_func.

  • unflatten_func (Callable[[_AuxData, _Children], T]) – a function taking two arguments: the auxiliary data that was returned by flatten_func and stored in the treedef, and the unflattened children. The function should return an instance of nodetype.
