### Spectral problem for a graph of symmetric Stieltjes strings

Methods Funct. Anal. Topology **20** (2014), no. 2, 164-174

A spectral problem generated by the Stieltjes string recurrence relations with a finite number of point masses on a connected graph is considered with Neumann conditions at pendant vertices and continuity and Kirchhoff conditions at interior vertices. The strings on the edges are supposed to be the same and symmetric with respect to the midpoint of the string. The characteristic function of such a problem is expressed via characteristic functions of two spectral problems on an edge: one with Dirichlet conditions at the both ends and the other one with the Neumann condition at one end and the Dirichlet condition at the other end. This permits to find values of the point masses and the lengths of the subintervals into which the masses divide the string from knowing the spectrum of the problem on the graph and the length of an edge. If the number of vertices is less than five then the spectrum uniquely determines the form of the graph.

### On characteristic functions of operators on equilateral graphs

Methods Funct. Anal. Topology **18** (2012), no. 2, 189-197

Known connection between discrete and continuous Laplacians in case of same symmetric potential on the edges of a quantum graph is used to construct characteristic functions of quantum graphs and to find some parameters of graphs using spectra of boundary value problems.
