On the Inverse Problem for Differential Operators on a Finite Interval with Complex Weights

  • V. A. YurkoEmail author


Inverse problems of spectral analysis for second-order differential operators on a finite interval with complex-valued weights and with an arbitrary number of discontinuity conditions for the solutions inside the interval are studied. Properties of the spectral characteristics are established, and uniqueness theorems for this class of inverse problems are proved.
