Abstract:
In this article we consider the linear second-order equation of
Sturm-Liouville type
$$
y''+(\lambda\phi^2(t)-q(t))y=0, \quad 0\leq t\leq 1,
$$
where $\lambda$ is a real parameter, $q(t)$ is the potential function
and $\phi^2(t)$ is the weight function. We use the infinite product
representation of the derivative of the solution to the differential equation
with Dirichlet-Neumann conditions, and for the system of dual equations
which is needed for expressing inverse problem and for retrieving potential.
It must be mentioned that the weight function has a zero whose order
is an integer called a turning point.
