I’m new to deep learning and have gone into learning LSTMs. But, reading the code, I have just found out that LSTMs return output and h_n, but, from as far as I knew h_n is the output:

What am I missing?

Thanks

I also recently studying LSTM. Here is the full picture of LSTM!

So, The output of LSTM is just some random weight matrix multiply with hidden state h_n.

I hope this help
