Abstract

The iterative projection method, originally proposed by Kaczmarz and Cimmino, was recently applied to particle size analysis with forward light scattering. Modification was made to improve the convergent procedure. However, there are still limitations. It is found that the solutions are oscillatory when the method is applied to a set of underdetermined linear equations without any additional constraints. A new version of the projection method, combined with the constraints of nonnegativity and smoothness, is proposed and is studied in the presence of experimental noise. Compared with the early versions of the projection method, this one shows fast convergence, is more stable against random noise, and is insensitive to particle size distributions.
