A main problem in adaptive optics is to reconstruct the phase spectrum given noisy phase differences. We present an efficient approach to solve the least-squares minimization problem resulting from this reconstruction, using either a truncated singular value decomposition (TSVD)-type or a Tikhonov-type regularization. Both of these approaches make use of Kronecker products and the generalized singular value decomposition. The TSVD-type regularization operates as a direct method whereas the Tikhonov-type regularization uses a preconditioned conjugate gradient type iterative algorithm to achieve fast convergence.
