A Dual Optimization Approach to Inverse Quadratic Eigenvalue Problems with Partial Eigenstructure

The inverse quadratic eigenvalue problem (IQEP) arises in the field of structural dynamics. It aims to find three symmetric matrices, known as the mass, the damping and the stiffness matrices, respectively such that they are closest to the given analytical matrices and satisfy the measured data. The difficulty of this problem lies in the fact … Read more
