What is being optimized with WGAN loss? Is the generator maximizing or minimizing the critic value?

I am kind of new to the field of GANs and decided to develop a WGAN. All of the information online seems to be kind of contradicting itself. The more I read, the more I become confused, so I'm hoping ...

Finer control over the distribution of output from a GAN

I have cast some data into an image (25 x 56) to work better with existing tools, and then used a CNN to train a GAN using the Wasserstein loss with gradient penalty to generate new samples of the ...

Why do we use a linear interpolation of fake and real data to penalize the gradient of discriminator in WGAN-GP

I'm trying to better frame/summarize the formulations and motivations behind Wasserstein GAN with gradient penalty, based on my understanding. For the basic GAN we are trying to optimize the following ...

Possible improvements to WGAN-GP output images

I am mapping rather complex data into what essentially amounts to a greyscale image to take better advantage of GANs for generative means. Here is an example of some real data: All real data is of ...

How to calculate the gradient penalty proposed in "Improved Training of Wasserstein GANs"?

The research paper titled Improved Training of Wasserstein GANs proposed a gradient penalty in order to avoid undesired behavior due to weight clipping of the discriminator. We now propose an ...

What to do with a GAN that trained well but got worse over time?

I am training a WGAN-GP network based on the following paper, though I am using a different dataset. Now, for the first ~ 60-70 epochs, my network trained really well, which I could see in the loss ...

How can I estimate the minimum number of training samples needed to get interesting results with WGAN?

Let's say we have a WGAN where the generator and critic have 8 layers and 5 million parameters each. I know that the greater the number of training samples the better, but is there a way to know the ...

Classifying generated samples with Wasserstein-GAN as real or fake

I'm quite new to GANs and I am trying to use a Wasserstein GAN as an augmentation technique. I found this article https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2095809918301127, and would like to ...

Aren't scores in the Wasserstein GAN probabilities?

I am quite new to GAN and I am reading about WGAN vs DCGAN. Relating to the Wasserstein GAN (WGAN), I read here Instead of using a discriminator to classify or predict the probability of generated ...

Wasserstein GAN: Implemention of Critic Loss Correct?

The WGAN paper concretely proposes Algorithm 1 (cf. page 8). Now, they also state what their loss for the critic and the generator is. When implementing the critic loss (so lines 5 and 6 of Algorithm ...

WGAN-GP Loss formalization

I have to write the formalization of the loss function of my network, built following the WGAN-GP model. The discriminator takes 3 consecutive images as input (such as 3 consecutive frames of a video) ...

What is the reason for mode collapse in GAN as opposed to WGAN?

In this article I am reading: $D_{KL}$ gives us inifity when two distributions are disjoint. The value of $D_{JS}$ has sudden jump, not differentiable at $\theta=0$. Only Wasserstein metric provides ...

Under what conditions can one find the optimal critic in WGAN?

The Kantorovich-Rubinstein duality for the optimal transport problem implies that the Wasserstein distance between two distributions $\mu_1$ and $\mu_2$ can be computed as (equation 2 in section 3 in ...

Wasserstein GAN with non-negative weights in the critic

I want to train a WGAN where the convolution layers in the critic are only allowed to have non-negative weights (for a technical reason). The biases, nonetheless, can take both +/- values. There is no ...
