In this paper, a variable projection approach based on the BFGS (Broyden-Fletcher-Goldfarb-Shanno) method for image reconstruction problems is proposed, which is an alternative to the common alternating minimisation scheme. The image restoration is expressed as a nonlinear least-squares problem with reduced parameter space. To improve the efficiency of the algorithm, the BFGS method is proposed to be used to optimise the reduced objective function. The large-scale problem considered in this
