A covariance‐adaptive approach for regularized inversion in linear models
SUMMARY The optimal inversion of a linear model under the presence of additive random noise in the input data is a typical problem in many geodetic and geophysical applications. Various methods
Resolution analysis of general inverse problems through inverse Monte Carlo sampling
The general inverse problem is characterized by at least one of the following two complications: (1) data can only be computed from the model by means of a numerical algorithm, and (2) the a priori

This work considers the situation where it is not appropriate to assume a structure for the parameter, but the observations on which the estimate are based are structured; specifically, when the observations are parametrized by a decomposable graphical model.
Monte Carlo sampling of solutions to inverse problems
In inverse problems, obtaining a maximum likelihood model is usually not sucient, as the theory linking data with model parameters is nonlinear and the a posteriori probability in the model space may not be easy to describe.
Sequential methods in parameter estimation
Introduction Parameter vs. function estimation Common research paradigms in heat transfer Sequential estimation over experiments for linear problems Sequential over time Starting values Example 1.1
Fast Model Updates Using Wavelets
This work considers a family of model parametrizations given by decimated wavelet bases and considers a well-known approach to accounting for model uncertainty, Bayesian model averaging, where many model parammetrizations are considered.
Estimation of parameter functions in ordinary differential equations with a stage structure: a linear case
In many mathematical models with complex parameter functions, it is critical to suggest a strategy for estimating those functions. This paper considers the problem of fitting parameter functions to
Parameter estimation and inverse problems
Adjustment of regularization in ill‐posed linear inverse problems by the empirical Bayes approach
A comparison between four types of difference-operator model suggests that the automatic determination of the optimum regularization parameter becomes more difficult with increasing order of the difference operators, and it is better to employ the lower-order difference- operator models for inversions of noisy data.
