Style GAN

Style-based generator

Style GAN substitutes the input latent code with a learned constant and transform original input latent code into feature space and add the style information in to the generator progressively. The input latent code $z$ is in the latent space $Z$, and a non-linear mapping network (8-layer MLP)performs to map $Z \to W$ and produce a style vector $w \in W$.

Learned affine transformation (denoted by A in Figure 1) then specialize $w$ to styles $y=(y_s,y_s)$ that control adaptive instance normalization (AdaIN) operations after each convolution layer of synthesis network $g$. The AdaIN operation is defined as


This operation stands for scaling the feature map of $g$ to match the distribution of the style code y.
