The truncated singular value decomposition (SVD) is considered as a method for regularization of illposed linear least squares problems. In particular, the truncated SVD solution is compared with the usual regularized solution. Necessary conditions are defined in which the two methods will yield similar results. This investigation suggests the truncated SVD as a favorable alternative to standardform regularization in cases of illconditioned matrices with welldetermined numerical rank.
