Regularization of an Ill-Posed Cauchy Problem for the Wave Equation (Numerical Experiment)

  • M. N. DemchenkoEmail author
  • N. V. Filimonenkova

Results of a numerical experiment of solving an ill-posed Cauchy problem for the wave equation are discussed. An instrumental function for the regularizing algorithm applied here is given, and an analysis of stability is carried out.
