The paper examines two problems depending on a small parameter \(\epsilon\). The first problem involves vibrations of a bounded thermoelastic body with \(\epsilon\) denoting the thermal conductivity. For \(\epsilon =0\) the spectrum consists of purely imaginary eigenvalues. The second problem concerns a three dimensional wave equation with density distribution depending on \(\epsilon\). As \(\epsilon \to 0\), the arising vibrations are associated with small eigenvalues.
