Tutorial on implementing Diffusion Models

The following Jupyter notebook contains a tutorial on implementing diffusion models from scratch. Diffusion models are the state-of-the-art image generation algorithm and the backbone of Stable Diffusion, Midjourney or Imagen. We will see how the discrete-time formulation can be derived and how one can derive the continuous-time formulation from it. If you are more interested in the continuous time formulation as well as the generalization properties of diffusion models, please see my other notebook.

The Jupyter notebook can be downloaded here or viewed in your webbrowser below. If you have any question, please feel free to contact me here.
For non-code introductions on SGMs I highly recommend the blogposts by Yang Song. Furthermore, there is a full-fledged JAX implementation of SGMs available here.
