What Is the Relation Between Deblurring and Deconvolution in Computer Vision and Image Processing?

The deblurring problem can be modelled as follows $$ f = \phi u + \epsilon, \; \epsilon \sim N(0, \sigma) $$ where $\phi$ is a filter (e.g. a low-pass filter) and $\epsilon$ is a Gaussian noise. In ...
