% The matrix T an N*N-by-N*N symmetric, block Toeplitz matrix that models
% blurring of an N-by-N image by a linear motion blur along the x- or y-axis.
% It is stored in sparse matrix format.
%
% The bandwidth, specified by the integer bandw, detemines the "length"
% of the deblurring, in the sense that bandw is the half-bandwidth of
% the matrix. Hence, the total "length" of the deblurring is 2*bandw-1.
% If bandw is not specified, bandw = 3 is used.
%
% The direction of the motion blurring is determined by the third
% argument being either 'x' og 'y'. The default is 'y',
% Per Christian Hansen, IMM, 09/03/97.
