# Result of matrix-multiplication is 'nan'

Here I have a two matrix-multiplications in my code. The first one works fine but the second one gives me 'nan' outputs.

Sigmoide:

``````double sigmoide(double value) {
return 1.0 / (1.0 + exp(-value));
}
``````

Initialize:

``````double LO = -0.5;
double HI = 0.5;

double input[50][2];
double hiddenWeights[2][10];
double outputWeights[11][1];
double hiddenResults[50][11];
double outputResults[50][1];

for (int i = 0; i < 50; i++) {
input[i][0] = 1.0f;                       /// Bias
input[i][1] = (7.0f/50.0f) * (double)i;   /// Samples
}

for (int i = 0; i < 50; i++) {
outputSetpoint[i][0] = sin((7.0f/50.0f) * (double)i);
}
``````

Random values between -0.5 and 0.5:

``````for (int i = 0; i < 2; i++) {
for (int j = 0; j < 10; j++) {
hiddenWeights[i][j] = LO + static_cast <float> (rand()) /( static_cast <float> (RAND_MAX/(HI-LO)));
}
}

for (int i = 0; i < 11; i++) {
for (int j = 0; j < 1; j++) {
outputWeights[i][j] = LO + static_cast <float> (rand()) /( static_cast <float> (RAND_MAX/(HI-LO)));
}
}
``````

Matrix-multiplication:

``````for (int s = 0; s < 50; s++) {
for (int j = 0; j < 10; j++) {
for (int i = 0; i < 2; i++) {
// First matrix-multiplication
hiddenResults[s][j] += nexttowardf(input[s][i] * hiddenWeights[i][j], 0.0f);
}
hiddenResults[s][10] = 1.0f;
hiddenResults[s][j] = sigmoide(hiddenResults[s][j]);
}

for (int j = 0; j < 1; j++) {
for (int i = 0; i < 11; i++) {
// Second matrix-multiplication
outputResults[s][j] += hiddenResults[s][i] * outputWeights[i][j];
}
outputResults[s][j] = sigmoide(outputResults[s][j]);
error = outputSetpoint[s][j] - outputResults[s][j];
}

std::cout << outputResults[s][0] << std::endl;
}
``````

Output:

``````nan

Answer Source

You forgot to initialise `hiddenResults` and `outputResults`

Do it:

``````double hiddenResults[50][11] = {0};
double outputResults[50][1] = {0};
``````

Initialise the other variables while you're at it.
It's a good habit to get into.
