Abstract: We consider approximations obtained by moment discretization to (i) the minimal -norm solution of where is a Hilbert-Schmidt integral operator on , and to (ii) the least squares solution of minimal -norm of the same equation when *y* is not in the range of . In case (i), if , then , where is the generalized inverse of , and otherwise. Rates of convergence are given in this case if further , where is the adjoint of , and the Hilbert-Schmidt kernel of satisfies certain smoothness conditions. In case (ii), if , then , and otherwise. If further , then rates of convergence are given in terms of the smoothness properties of the Hilbert-Schmidt kernel of .

Some of these results are generalized to a class of linear operator equations on abstract Hilbert spaces.
