The author considers a Sturm-Liouville problem on a finite interval \([a,b]\) with parameter dependent boundary conditions and an interface condition. The coefficients are such that the problem has a selfadjoint realization in the space \(L_2[a,b]\oplus \mathbb C^n\) for \(n=2\) or \(n=3\) with a definite and indefinite inner product. Then, the standard theory of selfadjoint operators with compact resolvent in Hilbert and Krein spaces, respectively, leads to results on (Riesz) basis property of the eigenvectors (and associated vectors).
