We show that a generic many-body Hamiltonian can be uniquely reconstructed from a single pair of initial-final states under the unitary time evolution. Interesting it is, this method is not practical due to its high complexity. We then propose a practical method for Hamiltonian reconstruction from multiple pairs of initial-final states. The stability of this method is mathematically proved and numerically verified.
