N2 - When solving the inverse scattering problem for a discrete Sturm-Liouville operator with a rapidly decreasing potential, one gets reflection coefficients s± and invertible operators I + ℋs±, where ℋs± is the Hankel operator related to the symbol s±. The Marchenko-Faddeev theorem (in the continuous case, for the discrete case see [4, 6]), guarantees the uniqueness of the solution of the inverse scattering problem. In this article we ask the following natural question - can one find a precise condition guaranteeing that the inverse scattering problem is uniquely solvable and that operators I + ℋs± are invertible? Can one claim that uniqueness implies invertibility or vise versa? Moreover, we are interested here not only in the case of decreasing potential but also in the case of asymptotically almost periodic potentials. So we merge here two mostly developed cases of the inverse problem for Sturm-Liouville operators: the inverse problem with (almost) periodic potential and the inverse problem with the fast decreasing potential.
