# From optimal transport to generative modeling: the VEGAN cookbook

We study unsupervised generative modeling in terms of the optimal transport (OT) problem between true (but unknown) data distribution $P_X$ and the latent variable model distribution $P_G$. We show that the OT problem can be equivalently written in terms of probabilistic encoders, which are constrained to match the posterior and prior distributions over the latent space... (read more)
