In this correspondence, a solution is developed for the regularized total least squares (RTLS) estimate in linear inverse problems where the linear operator is nonconvolutional. Our approach is based on a Rayleigh quotient (RQ) formulation of the TLS problem, and we accomplish regularization by modifying the RQ function to enforce a smooth solution. A conjugate gradient algorithm is used to minimize the modified RQ function. As an example, the proposed approach has been applied to the
