Abstract: A class of multiparameter eigenvalue problems involving (generally) non self-adjoint and unbounded operators is studied. A basis for the second root subspace, at eigenvalues of Fredholm type, is computed in terms of the underlying multiparameter system. A self-adjoint version of this result is given under a weak definiteness condition, and Sturm-Liouville and finite-dimensional examples are considered.
