Inverse spectral problems for coupled oscillating systems: reconstruction from three spectra


Abstract

We study an inverse spectral problem for a compound oscillating system consisting of a singular string and $N$~masses joined by springs. The operator $A$ corresponding to this system acts in $L_2(0,1)\times C^N$ and is composed of a Sturm-Liouville operator in $L_2(0,1)$ with a distributional potential and a Jacobi matrix in~$C^N$ that are coupled in a special way. We solve the problem of reconstructing the system from three spectra--namely, from the spectrum of $A$ and the spectra of its decoupled parts. A complete description of possible spectra is given.

Key words: Inverse spectral problem, Sturm–Liouville equation, Jacobi matrix, three spectra.
