# ResNeSt

Introduced by Zhang et al. in ResNeSt: Split-Attention Networks

A ResNest is a variant on a ResNet, which instead stacks Split-Attention blocks. The cardinal group representations are then concatenated along the channel dimension: $V = \text{Concat}${$V^{1},V^{2},\cdots{V}^{K}$}. As in standard residual blocks, the final output $Y$ of otheur Split-Attention block is produced using a shortcut connection: $Y=V+X$, if the input and output feature-map share the same shape. For blocks with a stride, an appropriate transformation $\mathcal{T}$ is applied to the shortcut connection to align the output shapes: $Y=V+\mathcal{T}(X)$. For example, $\mathcal{T}$ can be strided convolution or combined convolution-with-pooling.
