Element-wise multiplication of two vector is one of especial hadamard products.

An Introduction to Hadamard Product – Deep Learning Tutorial

In this tutorial, we will introduce element-wise multiplication for machine learning beginners.

Element-wise multiplication is widely used in neural network, For example:

Where Θ is the element-wise multiplication.

## What is the element-wise multiplication?

The element-wise multiplication between vectors can be computed as:

The result is a vector, not a scalar.

How to compute element-wise multiplication between vectors in tensorflow?

We can use * or tf.multiply() to compute.
