Russ. Acad. Sci., Dokl., Math. 49, No. 2, 298-302 (1994); translation from Dokl. Akad. Nauk, Ross. Akad. Nauk 335, No. 3, 281-283 (1994).
The spectral boundary value problem \((Pu')' + qu = \lambda u\), \(u |_{\partial \Gamma} = 0\), is considered. Here \(\Gamma\) is a finite geometric graph. The structure of the spectrum is described and the completeness of the root functions is proved.
