Paper Abstract

In this paper we describe an iterative algorithm, called Descent-TCG, based on truncated Conjugate Gradient iterations to compute Tikhonov regularized solutions of linear ill-posed problems. Suitable termination criteria are built-up to define an inner-outer iteration scheme for the computation of a regularized solution. Numerical experiments are performed to compare the algorithm with other well-established regularization methods. We observe that the best Descent-TCG results occur for highly noised data and we always get fairly reliable solutions, preventing the dangerous error growth often appearing in other well-established regularization methods. Finally, the Descent-TCG method is computationally advantageous especially for large size problems.
