Abstract

Quadratic pencils arising from applications are often inherently structured. Factors contributing to the structure include the connectivity of elements within the underlying physical system and the mandatory nonnegativity of physical parameters. For physical feasibility, structural constraints must be respected. Consequently, they impose additional challenges on the inverse eigenvalue problems which intend to construct a structured quadratic pencil from prescribed eigeninformation. Knowledge of whether a structured quadratic inverse eigenvalue problem is solvable is interesting in both theory and applications. However, the issue of solvability is problem dependent and has to be addressed structure by structure. This paper considers one particular structure where the elements of the physical system, if modeled as a mass-spring system, are serially linked. The discussion recasts both undamped or damped problems in a framework of inequality systems that can be adapted for numerical computation. Some open questions are described.
