Hi,

I’m trying to create my own layer. The layer does the following: it multiplies certain values if the input tensor and if the new value is bigger than the value at a given index, the current value gets replaced with this new value.

The forward function of the layer looks like this:

```
for vect in x:
for index, child_indexes in self.multi_order:
val = torch.ones(1, requires_grad=True)
for i in child_indexes:
val = val * (1 - vect[i])
val = 1 - val
vect[index] = torch.max(vect[index], val)
return vect
```

When I try to train a model on this, I get the flowing error

RuntimeError: one of the variables needed for gradient computation has been modified by an inplace operation: [torch.FloatTensor []], which is output 0 of SelectBackward, is at version 106432; expected version 106431 instead. Hint: the backtrace further above shows the operation that failed to compute its gradient. The variable in question was changed in there or anywhere later. Good luck!

The location where the error occurs is obviously on this line:

```
vect[index] = torch.max(vect[index], val)
```

How can I fix this error ? And am I correctly setting the `requires_grad`

parameters ?

Thanks in forward
