### Convolution

In mathematics, deconvolution is an algorithm-based process used to reverse the effects of convolution on recorded data.
Computing the inverse of the convolution operation is known as deconvolution.

### Wiener deconvolution

However, if we have at least some knowledge of the type of noise in the data (for example, white noise), we may be able to improve the estimate of ƒ through techniques such as Wiener deconvolution. The most common iterative algorithm for the purpose is the Richardson–Lucy deconvolution algorithm; the Wiener deconvolution (and approximations) are the most common non-iterative algorithms.
In mathematics, Wiener deconvolution is an application of the Wiener filter to the noise problems inherent in deconvolution.

### Wiener filter

WienerWiener–Kolmogorov filterlinear discrete-time filters
The reflectivity may be recovered by designing and applying a Wiener filter that shapes the estimated wavelet to a Dirac delta function (i.e., a spike).
This filter is frequently used in the process of deconvolution; for this application, see Wiener deconvolution.

### Reflection seismology

The concept of deconvolution had an early application in reflection seismology.
There are three main processes in seismic data processing: deconvolution, common-midpoint (CMP) stacking and migration.

### Blind deconvolution

This procedure is called blind deconvolution.
In electrical engineering and applied mathematics, blind deconvolution is deconvolution without explicit knowledge of the impulse response function used in the convolution.

The usual method is to assume that the optical path through the instrument is optically perfect, convolved with a point spread function (PSF), that is, a mathematical function that describes the distortion in terms of the pathway a theoretical point source of light (or other waves) takes through the instrument.
In microscope image processing and astronomy, knowing the PSF of the measuring device is very important for restoring the (original) object with deconvolution.

### Hubble Space Telescope

Early Hubble Space Telescope images were distorted by a flawed mirror and were sharpened by deconvolution.
The error was well characterized and stable, enabling astronomers to partially compensate for the defective mirror by using sophisticated image processing techniques such as deconvolution.

### CLEAN (algorithm)

CLEANCLEAN algorithmHögbom CLEAN algorithm
A commonly used method is the CLEAN algorithm.
The CLEAN algorithm is a computational algorithm to perform a deconvolution on images created in radio astronomy.

### Microscope image processing

microscopy
It is usually done in the digital domain by a software algorithm, as part of a suite of microscope image processing techniques.
This process is called deconvolution, and a variety of algorithms have been developed, some of great mathematical complexity.

For image processing, deconvolution is the process of approximately inverting the process that caused an image to be blurred.

### Deblurring

By proper deconvolution of the point spread function K and the blurred image B, the blurred image B can be deblurred (unblur) and the sharp image S can be recovered.

### Richardson–Lucy deconvolution

The most common iterative algorithm for the purpose is the Richardson–Lucy deconvolution algorithm; the Wiener deconvolution (and approximations) are the most common non-iterative algorithms.
