> The f_input doesn't have near-zero elements so I think the ill-posed problem of deconvolution can be ignored here. The 'conv_output' is not the same as 'output'.The multiplication in frequency domain corresponds to the circular convolution in time domain, and now what I want is the impulse response which can make its linear convolution with the input equals to the output. The padding doesn't work because the response obtained doesn't have zeros in the last 7 columns, so the aliasing caused by fft is not avoid. Is there any methods to reach my goal?
> Many thanks

Hope this helps.
