If we convolve an image with a point spread function and from the resulting image to find the input image, can we use any stochastic approaches? I feel like we will not be able to. A single image seems to me a deterministic quantity and I cannot think of any way to approach this deconvolution problem in a stochastic way. However, I am not sure and I want to know if there is a way. Any help is appreciated
Any Deconvolution method which takes into account the noise in the image is basically a stochastic approach.
Usually, the model for Deconvolution is:
So having the noise in there makes it a problem with stochastic properties.
If by stochastic you meant sampling from the Posterior Distribution then you may have a look at Stochastic Image Denoising by Sampling from the Posterior Distribution (Though it is not about Deconvolution but on Denoising).
