class ConstellationNet(nn.Module):
Autoencoder network to automatically shape a constellation of symbols for
efficient communication over an optical fiber channel.
def __init__(
Create an autoencoder.
:param order: Order of the constellation, i.e. the number of messages
that are to be transmitted, or equivalently the number of symbols whose
placements in the constellation have to be learned.
:param encoder_layers: Shape of the encoder’s hidden layers. The
size of this sequence is the number of hidden layers, with each element
being a number which specifies the number of neurons in its channel.
:param decoder_layers: Shape of the decoder’s hidden layers. Uses
the same convention as `encoder_layers_sizes` above.

Perform encoding and decoding of an input vector and compute its
reconstructed vector.

Extract the symbol constellation out of the trained encoder.
:return: Matrix containing `order` rows with the nᵗʰ one being the I/Q
vector that is the result of encoding the nᵗʰ message.
