de·con·vo·lu·tion

(dē'con-vō-lū'shŭn),
1. A mathematic technique for solution of functions whose input includes their output; used to solve for the image elements in computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging.
2. Computer-based process for enhancing image definition in microscopy.
[de- + L. convulutio, a rolling up, fr. convolvo, to roll up]

In [8], the author opts for a jitter deconvolution method rather than the median to improve the accuracy of the reconstructed spectrum (the higher frequency components are increased).

The relative intensities of the two endotherms in the S specimens reflect somehow the ratio of [gamma] and [alpha] crystals initially present in the sample, although now the deconvolution for determining the relative proportion of them is much more difficult than in the case of X-ray diffraction.
These measurements benefit from tandem-MS resolution and mass-measurement accuracy that enable effective deconvolution of the multiplexed peptide fragmentation spectra, as well as from other improvements.
Most of the examples are simple enough to solve with pencil and paper, because they emphasize the principles and fundamental processed on seismic imaging and deconvolution rather than the bells and whistles.
The new FL instrument incorporates solid state, multiplexing optics and dye deconvolution algorithms and is launched with freeze dried assays provided by Applied Biosystems.
