This type of constraint is known as regularization.
In mathematics, statistics, and computer science, particularly in machine learning and inverse problems, regularization is the process of adding information in order to solve an ill-posed problem or to prevent overfitting.

### Inverse scattering problem

inverse scattering
Whereas linear inverse problems were completely solved from the theoretical point of view at the end of the nineteenth century, only one class of nonlinear inverse problems was so before 1970, that of inverse spectral and (one space dimension) inverse scattering problems, after the seminal work of the Russian mathematical school (Krein, Gelfand, Levitan, Marchenko).
It is the inverse problem to the direct scattering problem, which is to determine how radiation or particles are scattered based on the properties of the scatterer.

### Well-posed problem

ill-posedill-posed problemwell-posed
(However, by the bounded inverse theorem, if the mapping is bijective, then the inverse will be bounded (i.e. continuous).) Thus small errors in the data d are greatly amplified in the solution m. In this sense the inverse problem of inferring m from measured d is ill-posed.
Inverse problems are often ill-posed.

Atmospheric sounding
It is usually easy to go from the state space to the measurement space—for instance with Beer's law or radiative transfer—but not the other way around, therefore we need some method of inverting \vec f or of finding the inverse model, \vec f^{-1}.
