## Abstract

The total least squares (TLS) and truncated TLS (T-TLS) methods are widely known linear data fitting approaches, often used also in the context of very ill-conditioned, rank-deficient, or ill-posed problems. Regularization properties of T-TLS applied to linear approximation problems *Ax* ≈ *b* were analyzed by Fierro, Golub, Hansen, and O’Leary (1997) through the so-called filter factors allowing to represent the solution in terms of a filtered pseudoinverse of *A* applied to *b*. This paper focuses on the situation when multiple observations *b*
_{1},..., *b*
_{
d
} are available, i.e., the T-TLS method is applied to the problem *AX* ≈ *B*, where *B* = [*b*
_{1},..., *b*
_{
d
}] is a matrix. It is proved that the filtering representation of the T-TLS solution can be generalized to this case. The corresponding filter factors are explicitly derived.
