For the backward diffusion equation, a stable discrete energy regularization algorithm is proposed. Existence and uniqueness of the numerical solution are given. Moreover, the error between the solution of the given backward diffusion equation and the numerical solution via the regularization method can be estimated. Some numerical experiments illustrate the efficiency of the method, and its application in image deblurring.
