We propose here a new approach together with a corresponding class of algorithms for offline estimation of linear operators mapping input to output signals. The operators are modeled as multipliers, i.e., linear and diagonal operator in a frame or Bessel representation of signals (like Gabor, wavelets ...) and characterized by a transfer function. The estimation problem is formulated as a regularized inverse problem, and solved using iterative algorithms, based on gradient descent schemes… Expand
