The operator can be defined as

Figure 7 shows that using this operator
with finite values of is equivalent to the introduction of
the damping factor in equation (7). Also we can see that
the results obtained with small values of are
similar to those obtained with the predictive deconvolution.
An *L*^{p} norm deconvolution can be formulated as an iterative,
reweighted least-squares inversion with weighting factors given
by , where
are the residuals of the previous iteration (Darche, 1989).
Since the value of the exponent
will directly affect the relative weighting of the residuals,
we can consider the ICP decon as somehow equivalent to
an norm deconvolution.
