Quasi-regression, motivated by the problems arising in the computer experiments, focuses mainly on speeding up evaluation. However, its theoretical properties are unexplored systemically. This paper shows that quasi-regression is unbiased, strong convergent and asymptotic normal for parameter estimations but it is biased for the fitting of curve. Furthermore, a new method called unbiased quasi-regression is proposed. In addition to retaining the above asymptotic behaviors of parameter estimations, unbiased quasi-regression is unbiased for the fitting of curve.

    To obtain smooth solutions to ill-posed problems, the standard Tikhonov regularization method is most often used. For the practical choice of the regularization parameter á we can then employ the well-known L-curve criterion, based on the L-curve which is a plot of the norm of the regularized...
