An operator matrix $H$ associated with a lattice system describing three particles in interactions, without conservation of the number of particles, is considered. The structure of the essential spectrum of $H$ is described by the spectra of two families of the generalized Friedrichs models. A symmetric version of the Weinberg equation for eigenvectors of $H$ is obtained. The conditions which guarantee the finiteness of the number of discrete eigenvalues located below the bottom of the three-particle branch of the essential spectrum of $H$ is found.

The article is devoted to a study of Bogoliubov functionals by using methods of the operator spectral theory being applied to the classical power moment problem. Some results, similar to corresponding ones for the moment problem, where obtained for such functionals. In particular, the following question was studied: under what conditions a sequence of nonlinear functionals is a sequence of Bogoliubov functionals.

In this paper we develop a functional calculus for a countable system of generators of contraction strongly continuous semigroups. As a symbol class of such calculus we use the algebra of polynomial tempered distributions. We prove a differential property of constructed calculus and describe its image with the help of the commutant of polynomial shift semigroup. As an application, we consider a function of countable set of second derivative operators.

We investigate the dynamical systems modeling conflict processes between a pair of opponents. We assume that opponents are given on a common space by distributions (probability measures) having the similar or self-similar structure. Our main result states the existence of the controlled conflict in which one of the opponents occupies almost whole conflicting space. Besides, we compare conflicting effects stipulated by the rough structural approximation under controlled redistributions of starting measures.
