Freezing weights in pytorch for param_groups setting

Freezing weights in pytorch for param_groups setting.

So if one wants to freeze weights during training:

for param in child.parameters():
        param.requires_grad = False

the optimizer also has to be updated to not include the non gradient weights:

optimizer = torch.optim.Adam(filter(lambda p: p.requires_grad, model.parameters()),, amsgrad=True)

If one wants to use different weight_decay / learning rates for bias and weights/this also allows for differing learning rates:

param_groups = [{'params': model.module.bias_parameters(), 'weight_decay': args.bias_decay},
                {'params': model.module.weight_parameters(), 'weight_decay': args.weight_decay}]

param_groups a list of dics is defined and passed into SGD as follows:

optimizer = torch.optim.Adam(param_groups,,
                                 betas=(args.momentum, args.beta))

How can this be achieved with freezing individual weights? Running filter over a list of dics or is there a way of adding tensors to the optimizer separately?
