5. Tikhonov Regularization

The importance of Tikhonov regularization in the solution of an ill-posed inverse problem in general, and in the calibration of a groundwater model in particular, is explained. Also explained is its ability to achieve a solution to an inverse problem that is of minimized error variance through the role that it bestows on expert knowledge and site characterization in achieving that solution.
