In this paper we prove that the Landweber iteration is a stable method for solving nonlinear ill-posed problems. For perturbed data with noise level \(\delta \) we propose a stopping rule that yields the convergence rate \(O (\delta ^{1/2}\) ) under appropriate conditions. We illustrate these conditions for a few examples.
