This article reviews recent literature on inverse problems relating to the reconstruction or estimation of the physical properties of mechanical systems from a knowledge of (some of) their spectral and/or modal data. The review relates exclusively to small vibrations of mechanical systems. The literature is divided according to: the type of system, continuous or discrete, damped or undamped; the type of data, spectral, modal, nodal, complete or incomplete.
