HyBR

Hybrid Bidiagonalization Regularization


Background
Lanczos-hybrid regularization methods have been proposed as effective approaches for solving large-scale ill-posed inverse problems. Lanczos methods restrict the solution to lie in a Krylov subspace, but they are hindered by semi-convergence behavior, in that the quality of the solution first increases and then decreases. Hybrid methods apply a standard regularization technique, such as Tikhonov regularization, to the projected problem at each iteration. Thus, regularization in hybrid methods is achieved both by Krylov filtering and by appropriate choice of a regularization parameter at each iteration.


HyBR Implementation
Here we provide a MATLAB implementation of the Lanczos-hybrid regularization, which we refer to as HyBR.
