Regularization by Least-Squares Collocation

  • Heinz W. Engl
Part of the Progress in Scientific Computing book series (PSC, volume 2)


The term “least-squares collocation” (abbreviated “LSC” in the sequel) appears in many different contexts, where functions have to be approximated by terms resulting from finitely many measurements.
