We study the solutions of the inverse problem g(z)=∫f(y)P T(z,dy)for a given g, where (P t(⋅,⋅)) t≥0 is the transition function of a given symmetric Markov process, X, and T is a fixed deterministic time, which is linked to the solutions of the ill-posed Cauchy problem u t+Au=0,u(0,⋅)=g,where A is the generator of X. A necessary and sufficient condition ensuring square integrable solutions is given. Moreover, a family of regularisations for above problems is suggested. We show in particular that these inverse problems have a solution when X is replaced by ξX+(1−ξ)J, where ξ is a Bernoulli random variable and J is a suitably constructed jump process. The probability of success for ξ can be chosen arbitrarily close to 1 and thereby leading to a jump component whose jumps are rarely visible in the practical implementations of the regularisation.
