### Abstract

Discretization of inverse problems often leads to systems of linear equations with a highly ill-conditioned coefficient matrix. To find meaningful solutions of such systems, one kind of prevailing and representative approaches is the so-called regularized total least squares (TLS) method when both the system matrix and the observation term are contaminated by some noises. We will survey two such regularization methods in the TLS setting. One is the iterative truncated TLS (TTLS) method which can solve a convergent sequence of projected linear systems generated by Lanczos bidiagonalization. The other one is to convert the Tikhonov regularization TLS problem to an unconstrained optimization problem with the properties of a convex function. The optimization problem will be solved with the state-of-the-art conjugate gradient (CG) method, and moreover, the adaptive strategy for selecting regularization parameter is also established. Finally, both the new methods are applied to tackle several Fredholm integral equations of the first kind which are known to be typical ill-posed problems. The results of numerical examples demonstrate that the robustness and effectiveness of the two novel algorithms make a significant improvement in the solution of ill-posed linear problems, i.e., yield more accurate regularized solution than other typical methods.
