One new strategy for a priori choice of regularizing parameters in Tikhonov’s regularization. (English) Zbl 0957.65052
Ill-posed inverse problems in Banach spaces of the type \(K(f)= 0\) for given \(g\) and a possibly nonlinear, densely defined operator \(K\) are considered. The inverse \(K^{-1}\) is assumed to be not continuous or the range of \(K\) is not closed. The authors provide a strategy for choosing a priori the parameter in Tikhonov’s regularization method for solving the problem approximately. The resulting convergence is analyzed under the assumption and conditional stability.
The new strategy is demonstrated for some examples (determination of coefficients or sources in a wave equation, determination of the shape of a boundary, and an integral equation with analytic kernel of the first kind).
