where [z.sub.i] are the measured profile data with a constant sampling interval [increment of x], w(x) is the output profile, i is the index of a point in the dataset, N is the total number of measured data points, and [[mu].sub.l] (l = 1, ..., n) are the regularization parameters, n + 1 is defined as the order of the filter.
