# Loss-Sensitive GAN

Author: Guo-Jun Qi, Date: 1/9/2017, most recent update: 2/8/2017

Questions about the source codes can be directed to Dr. Guo-Jun Qi at [email protected] All copyrights reserved.

Please cite the following paper when referring to the following algorithms (LS-GAN and CLS-GAN)

Guo-Jn Qi. Loss-Sensitive Generative Adversarial Networks on Lipschitz Densities. arXiv:1701.06264 [pdf]

We are keeping updating this repository of source codes, and more results and algorithms will be released soon.

• We now have a new project generalizing LS-GAN to a more general form, called Generalized LS-GAN (GLS-GAN). It unifies Wasserstein GAN as well as this LS-GAN in an integrated framework, along with a super class of GLS-GANs including various new GAN members to explore. Check the github project at https://github.com/guojunq/glsgan, and the Appendix D of the newly updated prepint

• We also show an incomplete map of GANs at http://www.cs.ucf.edu/~gqi/GANs.htm, which plots the terrority of basic GANs in our view. We will update the map as more GAN territories are found.

## Notes on setting the hyperparameters

• gamma: this is the coefficient for loss-minimization term (the first term in the objective for optimizing L_\theta).
• lambda: the scale of margin. This controls the desired margins between real and fake samples. However, we found this is a hyperparameter not very sensitive to the generation performance.

## LS-GAN (without conditions)

### For celebA dataset

mkdir celebA; cd celebA


unzip img_align_celeba.zip; cd ..
DATA_ROOT=celebA th data/crop_celebA.lua


2.Training the LS-GAN

DATA_ROOT=celebA dataset=folder th lsgan.lua


### For LSUN bedroom dataset

2. Prepare the dataset following the instructions below

1. Install LMDB in your system:
sudo apt-get install liblmdb-dev
2. Install torch packages:
luarocks install lmdb.torch
luarocks install tds

lsun/train
4. Create an index file : Copy lsunindexgenerator.lua to lsun/train, and run
cd lsun/train
DATA_ROOT=. th lsun_index_generator.lua

Now you should have bedroomtrainlmdbhasheschartensor.t7 in lsun/train
5. Now return to the parent direcotry of lsun, and you should be ready to run lsgan.lua:
DATA_ROOT=lsun th lsgan.lua


### How to display the generated images

To display images during training and generation, we will use the display package.

• Install it with:
luarocks install https://raw.githubusercontent.com/szym/display/master/display-scm-0.rockspec
• Then start the server with:
th -ldisplay.start
• Open this URL in your browser: http://localhost:8000

## For Conditional LS-GAN (CLS-GAN)

1. MNIST: run
torch-rocks install https://raw.github.com/andresy/mnist/master/rocks/mnist-scm-1.rockspec
2. CIFAR10: run
th ./data/Cifar10bintoTensor.lua
3. SVHN: run
th ./data/svhn.lua
2. Now you should be able to run clsgan.lua now. Select the dataset you want to use. For example you want to run MNIST to generate handwritten digits according to ten digit classes. Then you can run the following command line

dataset=mnist th clsgan.lua
`

For the other parameters you can set, please refer to the script in clsgan.lua.
