Abstract: The weak sequential compactness of reflexive Banach spaces is used to explain the fact that certain ill-posed, linear problems become well-posed if the solutions are required to satisfy a prescribed bound. Applications are made to the computability of solutions of ill-posed problems associated with elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations.
