abstract = {
In this article we tackle the problem of inverse non linear ill-posed
problems from a statistical point of view. We discuss the problem
of estimating an indirectly observed function, without prior
knowledge of its regularity,
based on noisy observations. For this we
consider two
approaches: one based on the Tikhonov regularization procedure, and
another one based on model selection methods for both ordered and non
ordered subsets. In each case
we prove consistency of the estimators and show that their rate of convergence is optimal for the given
estimation procedure.
