### Explain the relationship between Tikhonov regularization, SVD , least squres, and the Wiener filter

I found in the Wikipedia site for Tikhonov regularization that the SVD for a Tikhonov regularized problem take us to the least squares regularized solution: \begin{eqnarray} \hat{x}= V D U^T b, \end{...

### In computed tomography (CT), why is 'Inverse Problem of Radon transform' studied?

As I know, the Radon transform is a very important tool in CT by Beer's law. Thus, finding $f(x)$ of Radon transform $Rf(L):=\int_{L} f(x)dl(x)$ is helpful in CT. Nowaday, the Filtered back-projection ...
