A matrix inverse eigenvalue problem and its application. (English) Zbl 0901.15003

For given real \(n\)-vectors \(x_1, \dots, x_p\), \(y_1, \dots, y_p\) and complex \(S= \{\lambda_1, \dots, \lambda_n\}\) find a real \(n\times n\) matrix \(A\) such that \(Ax_j =y_j\), \(j=1, \dots, p\), and \(S\) is the spectrum of \(A\). The paper proves an existence theorem and an algorithm for \(A\) and relates the problem to the pole assignment problem of control theory and to designing neural networks.
