summary:By using a quasi-boundary regularization we can formulate a two-point boundary value problem of the backward heat conduction equation. The ill-posed problem is analyzed by using the semi-discretization numerical schemes. Then, the resulting ordinary differential equations in the discretized space are numerically integrated towards the time direction by the Lie-group shooting method to ﬁnd the unknown initial conditions. The key point is based on the erection of a one-step Lie group element G(T) and the formation of a generalized mid-point Lie group element G(r). Then, by imposing G(T) = G(r) we can seek the missing initial conditions through a minimum discrepancy of the target in terms of the weighting factor r ∈ (0, 1). A numerical example is worked out to persuade that this novel approach has good efﬁciency and accuracy.
