Inverse spectral problems for Sturm-Liouville equations with eigenparameter dependent boundary conditions. (English) Zbl 0960.34010

Theorems analogous to those of V. A. Marchenko [Dokl. Akad. Nauk SSSR, n. Ser. 72, 457-460 (1950; Zbl 0040.34301)] and H. Hochstadt [J. Differ. Equations 17, 220-235 (1975; Zbl 0266.34027)] are proved for the boundary value problem \[ -(p(x)y')'+q(x)y=\lambda r(x)y,\quad 0<x<1, \]
\[ y(0)\cos\alpha+y'(0)\sin\alpha=0,\quad (a\lambda+b)y(1)=(c\lambda+d)y'(1), \] where \(r(x), p(x)\in C^1\) are positive with absolutely continuous derivatives, \(q(x)\in L^1, \alpha, a, b, c, d\) are real, \(c\neq 0,\) and \(ad-bc>0.\) The case of two eigenparameter-dependent boundary conditions is also considered.
