In this paper it is shown that the generalized
smoothing spline
obtained by solving an optimal control problem for a linear control system converges to a deterministic curve even when the data points are perturbed by random noise. We furthermore show that such a spline acts as a filter for white noise.
Examples are constructed that
support the practical usefulness of the method as well as
gives some
hints as to the speed of convergence.
