Correction for spurious phase via estimation of non-minimum phase wavelet

Deconvolution with minimum phase wavelet assumption usually leaves the
data with spurious phase. The phase correction required to remove the
spurious phase is done by a simple parameterization of the underlying mixed phase wavelet, which involves estimation of an all-pass operator coefficients via cumulant matching technique. The approach involves setting up a cost function with unknown shape and using a simulated annealing algorithm for optimization.
