Abstract: For an $n$th order linear boundary value problem $Lf = {g_0}$ in the Hilbert space ${L^2}[a,b]$, a sequence of approximate solutions is constructed which converges to the unique least squares solution of minimal norm. The method is practical from a computational viewpoint, and it does not require knowing the null spaces of the differential operator $L$ or its adjoint ${L^ \ast }$.
