Does the number of parameters in a convolutional neuronal network increase if the input dimension increases?

If I have a convolutional neuronal network, does the input dimension change the number of parameters? And if yes, why? If the sizes and lengths of the filters are still the same, how can the number of parameter in a network increase?

If the convolutional neural network (CNN) only uses convolutional layers, then the number of parameters does not increase as a function of the spatial dimensions ($$x$$ and $$y$$) of the input. This is one of the advantages of CNNs!

The reason is quite simple: the parameters of the convolutional layers are the kernels (aka filters), which typically have fixed dimensions and can, nevertheless, be applied to inputs of different spatial dimensions, provided that the necessary padding is used. However, note that padding can create bigger feature maps, but feature maps are not the parameters of the neural network: they are the output of the convolutional layers. That's probably what confuses you, when you see a diagram of a CNN, because you see bigger feature maps and you might think that the number of parameters increases.

Here's a TensorFlow 2 (and Keras) program that shows that the number of parameters does not change as a function of the $$x$$ and $$y$$ dimension of the input.

import tensorflow as tf

input_shapes = [(2 * k, 2 * k, 3) for k in range(2, 6)]

for input_shape in input_shapes:
model = tf.keras.Sequential()

The parameters of the CNN can also increase if you increase the depth of the input, but that's typically fixed (either $$3$$ for RGB images or $$1$$ for grayscale images). The reason is quite simple too: the kernels in the first convolutional layer (connected to the input layer) will have the same depth as the depth of the input.
