Real conditions of deblurring involve a spatially nonlinear process since the borders are truncated, causing significant artifacts in the restored results. Typically, it is assumed to have boundary conditions to reduce ringing; in contrast, this paper proposes a restoration method which simply deals with null borders. We minimize a deterministic regularized function in a Multilayer Perceptron (MLP) with no training and follow a back-propagation algorithm with the L1 and L2 norm-based regularizers. As a result, the truncated borders are regenerated while adapting the center of the image to the optimum linear solution. We report experimental results showing the good performance of our approach in a real model without borders. Even if using boundary conditions, the quality of restoration is comparable to other recent researches.
