As an example, consider input data of the following form

using Fredholm, QuadGK, Random

F(t) = exp(-(t - 2)^2 / (2 * 0.3^2)) + exp(-(t - 3)^2 / (2 * 0.3^2))
y(s) =  quadgk(t -> F(t) * exp(-t * s), 0, Inf, rtol=1e-6)[1] 

s = 10.0.^(-2:0.05:1)  # generate discrete example data
ys = map(y, s)         # from this we want to approximate F(t)
noise = (randn(length(ys))) * 0.001 

ti = 0:0.01:5|> collect #define the t-domain for the solution
α = 1.2e-4
t, yt, ss, yss= invert(s, ys .+ noise, ti, (t, s) -> exp(-t * s), Tikhonov(α))

The solution yt at discrete t will very much depend on the choice of the regularization parameter α. If more noise is present in the data a higher α should be picked and vice versa. The variables ss and yss contain the regularized from of s and ys, where ss[end] contians the y-offset. If invert is called with the keyword yoffset=false ss and s will be equal.


To allow the solution to take also negative amplitudes use the tdomain = :real keyword

t, yt = invert(s, ys .+ noise, ti, (t, s) -> exp(-t * s), Tikhonov(α), tdomain=:real)

In cases that the regularization parameter α is not known beforehand one can estimate it via the L-Curve method by calling

t, yt = invert(s, ys .+ noise, ti, (t, s) -> exp(-t * s), LCurve(Tikhonov(α)), tdomain=:real)
