class Generator(nn.Module):
"""
Defines a simple generator network accepting a latent vector and through a sequence of convolution layers
constructs an output tensor of greater size and high dimensionality. The method `_get_layer` is used to
create each of these layers, override this method to define layers beyond the default
:py:class:`monai.networks.blocks.Convolution` or :py:class:`monai.networks.blocks.ResidualUnit` layers.
The layers are constructed using the values in the `channels` and `strides` arguments, the number being defined by
the length of these (which must match). Input is first passed through a :py:class:`torch.nn.Linear` layer to
convert the input vector to an image tensor with dimensions `start_shape`. This passes through the convolution
layers and is progressively upsampled if the `strides` values are greater than 1 using transpose convolutions. The
size of the final output is defined by the `start_shape` dimension and the amount of upsampling done through
strides. In the default definition the size of the output's spatial dimensions will be that of `start_shape`
multiplied by the product of `strides`, thus the example network below upsamples an starting size of (64, 8, 8)
to (1, 64, 64) since its `strides` are (2, 2, 2).
Args:
latent_shape: tuple of integers stating the dimension of the input latent vector (minus batch dimension)
start_shape: tuple of integers stating the dimension of the tensor to pass to convolution subnetwork
channels: tuple of integers stating the output channels of each convolutional layer
strides: tuple of integers stating the stride (upscale factor) of each convolutional layer
kernel_size: integer or tuple of integers stating size of convolutional kernels
num_res_units: integer stating number of convolutions in residual units, 0 means no residual units
act: name or type defining activation layers
norm: name or type defining normalization layers
dropout: optional float value in range [0, 1] stating dropout probability for layers, None for no dropout
bias: boolean stating if convolution layers should have a bias component
Examples::
# 3 layers, latent input vector of shape (42, 24), output volume of shape (1, 64, 64)
net = Generator((42, 24), (64, 8, 8), (32, 16, 1), (2, 2, 2))
