A particular type of Tikhonov regularization, known as ridge regression, is particularly useful to mitigate the problem of multicollinearity in linear regression, which commonly occurs in models with large numbers of parameters.

GRR has a major advantage over ridge regression (RR) in that a solution to the minimization problem for one model selection criterion, i.e., Mallowsâ $C_p$ criterion, can be obtained explicitly with GRR, but such a solution for any model selection criteria, e.g., $C_p$ criterion, cross-validation (CV) criterion, or generalized CV (GCV) criterion, cannot be obtained explicitly with RR. %���� from the sample and we: use the remaining
