The ill-posed problem of unknown source identification in the time-fractional radial heat conduction equation is studied. In order to overcome the ill-posedness of the problem, a stationary iterated weighted Tikhonov regularization method is proposed. The a-priori and the a-posteriori choice rules for regularization parameters are discussed and the corresponding convergence rates of both are obtained. The stationary iterated weighted Tikhonov regularization method goes beyond the saturation results of weighted Tikhonov regularization method. A numerical example shows the effectiveness of this method.
