The thermogram reproduces the image of the heat-generating structures located inside the object under study. This image is transmitted with distortions, since the sources are usually removed from its surface and the temperature distribution on the surface of the object transmits the image as blurred due to the processes of thermal conductivity and heat exchange. In this paper, the continuation of the temperature function as a harmonic function from the surface deep into the object under study in order to obtain a temperature distribution function near sources is considered as a correction principle. This distribution is considered as an adjusted thermogram. The continuation is carried out on the basis of solving the Cauchy problem for the Laplace equation - an ill-posed problem. The solution is constructed using the Tikhonov regularization method. The main part of the constructed approximate solution is presented as a Fourier series by the eigenfunctions of the Laplace operator. Discretization of the problem leads to discrete Fourier series. A modification of the Hamming method for summing Fourier series and calculating their coefficients is proposed.</p>thermogramill-posed problemCauchy problem for the Laplace equationTikhonov regularization methoddiscrete Fourier seriesтермограмманекорректная задачазадача Коши для уравнения Лапласаметод регуляризации Тихоновадискретный ряд Фурье[E.
