The transformation method that was originally used to tailor the physical fields into desired spatial patterns by designing material parameters is used herein to obtain necessary local dynamic parameters when the state distribution of a network system is prescribed in space. This constitutes a typical inverse problem that controls the state distribution of a complex network by designing its local dynamic parameters. Thus, it is difficult to obtain a direct solution. This coordinate transformation provides a direct method. The feasibility of this method is demonstrated and verified by two examples (a communication field bender and a communication field cloak) in corresponding network systems.
