Inverse Eigenvalue Problems: Theory, Algorithms, and Applications

Moody Chu and Gene Golub


The basic goal of an inverse eigenvalue problem is to reconstruct the physical parameters of a certain system from the knowledge or desire of its dynamical behavior. Depending on the application, inverse eigenvalue problems appear in many different forms. This book discusses the fundamental questions, some known results, many applications, mathematical properties, a variety of numerical techniques, as well as several open problems.

Keywords: parameter reconstruction, dynamical behaviour, application, results, mathematical techniques, numerical techniques
