Summary: 
We propose a non-blind deconvolution algorithm of point cloud attributes inspired by multi-Wiener SURE-LET deconvolution for images. The image reconstructed by the SURE-LET approach is expressed as a linear combination of multiple filtered images where the filters are defined on the frequency domain. The coefficients of the linear combination are calculated so that the estimate of mean squared error between the original and restored images is minimized. Although the approach is very effective, it is only applicable to images. Recently we have to handle signals on irregular grids, e.g., texture data on 3D models, which are often blurred due to diffusion or motions of objects. However, we cannot utilize image processing-based approaches straightforwardly since these high-dimensional signals cannot be transformed into their frequency domain. To overcome the problem, we use graph signal processing (GSP) for deblurring the complex-structured data. That is, the SURE-LET approach is redefined on GSP, where the Wiener-like filtering is followed by the subband decomposition with an analysis graph filter bank, and then thresholding for each subband is performed. In the experiments, the proposed method is applied to blurred textures on 3D models and synthetic sparse data. The experimental results show clearly deblurred signals with SNR improvements.
