Inverse Problems for Arbitrary Order Differential Operators with Discontinuties in an Interior Point

  • V. A. Yurko


Inverse spectral problems are studied for arbitrary order differential operators on a finite interval with jump conditions inside the interval. Properties of spectral characteristics are obtained, and uniqueness theorems are proved for this class of inverse problems.
