A Total Least Squares Method for Toeplitz Systems of Equations

J. Kamm and J. Nagy

A Newton method to solve total least squares problems for Toeplitz systems of equations is considered. When coupled with a bisection scheme, which is based on an efficient algorithm for factoring Toeplitz matrices, global convergence can be guaranteed. Circulant and approximate factorization preconditioners are proposed to speed convergence when a conjugate gradient method is used to solve linear systems arising during the Newton iterations.
