A model inverse spectral problem for the Sturm-Liouville operator on a geometric graph is studied. This problem consists in finding N parameters of the boundary conditions using its N known eigenvalues. It is shown that the problem under consideration possess the property of a monotonic dependence of its eigenvalues on the parameters of the boundary conditions. This problem is reduced to a multiparameter inverse spectral problem for the operator in a finite-dimensional space. A new algorithm for the numerical solution of this problem is proposed.
