Analysis of a Preconditioned CG method for an Inverse Bioelectric Field Problem
 Abstract
This paper is a continuation of our previous analysis from [4] related to the electrocardiographic (ECG) inverse problem. In that paper we formulated the inverse ECG problem as a differential inverse problem and derived an appropriate simulation procedure. As numerical solver we employed the Conjugate Gradient algorithm for the normal equations (CGNE) together with a stopping test constructed following the discrepancy principle by Morozov. In the current paper we consider a preconditioned version of the CGNE algorithm. The preconditioner is constructed using the Cholesky factors of the discrete Laplacian which forms a block of the original system matrix. We derive some theoretical results concerning the efficiency and also the limitations of the preconditioner. Numerical experiments and comparisons are presented for the cases analysed in [4]. [4] M.
