I have a continuous state space, and a continuous action space. The way I understand it, I can build a policy network which takes as input a continuous state vector and outputs both mean vector and covariance matrix of the action-distribution. To get a valid action I then sample from that distribution.
However, when trying to implement such a network, I get the error message that the parts of my output layer which I want to be the covariance matrix are singular/not positive-semi-definite. How can I fix this? I tried different activation-functions and initializations for the last layer, but once in a while I run into the same problem again.
How can I enforce that my network outputs a valid covariance matrix?
