In this paper we investigate a non-characteristic Cauchy problem for a fractional diffusion equation. Using the Fourier transformation technique, we give a conditional stability estimate on the solution. Since the problem is highly ill-posed in the Hadamard sense, a modified version of the Tikhonov regularization technique is devised for stable numerical reconstruction of the solution. An error bound with optimal order is proven. For illustration, several numerical experiments are constructed… CONTINUE READING
