Analysis on Graphs and its Applications

We will show that, in the 2D static case , any positive semidefinte and balanced matrix $W$ is the response matrix of a purely elastic planar network. Moreover we will present a constructive proof for the fact that the network we design for a particular response matrix $W$ can fit within an arbitrarily small neighborhood of the convex hull of the terminal nodes, provided the springs and masses occupy an arbitrarily small volume.
