In this paper, we study a Cauchy problem for the heat equation with linear source in the form ut(x,t)= uxx(x,t)+f(x,t), u(L,t)=  φ(t), u(L,t)= Ψ (t), (x,t) ∈ (0,L) ×(0, 2π). This problem is ill-posed in the sense of Hadamard. To regularize the problem, the truncation method is proposed to solve the problem in the presence of noisy Cauchy data φε and Ψε satisfying ‖ φε - φ ‖+‖ Ψε - Ψ ‖ ≤ ε and that fε satisfying ‖ fε(x,. ) - f(x,.) ‖ ≤ ε .  We give some error estimates between the regularized solution and the exact solution under some different a-priori conditions of exact solution.
