In this paper a technique to obtain a first approximation for singular inverse Sturm-Liouville problems with a symmetrical potential is introduced. The singularity, as a result of unbounded domain (-infinity, infinity), is treated by considering numerically the asymptotic limit of the associated problem on a finite interval (-L, L). In spite of this treatment, the problem has still an ill-conditioned structure unlike the classical regular ones and needs regularization techniques. Direct computation of eigenvalues in iterative solution procedure is made by means of pseudospectral methods. A fairly detailed description of the numerical algorithm and its applications to specific examples are presented to illustrate the accuracy and convergence behaviour of the proposed approach.
