We try to generalize the concept of a spectrum in the nonlinear case starting from its splitting into several subspectra, not necessarily disjoint, following the classical decomposition of the spectrum. To obtain an extension of spectrum with rich properties, we replace the identity map by a nonlinear operator 𝐽 acting between two Banach spaces 𝑋 and 𝑌 , which takes into account the analytical and topological properties of a given operator 𝐹 , although the original definitions have been given only in the case 𝑋 = 𝑌 and 𝐽 = 𝐼 . The FMV spectrum reflects only asymptotic properties of 𝐹 , while the Feng's spectrum takes into account the global behaviour of 𝐹 and gives applications to boundary value problems for ordinary differential equations or for the second-order differential equations, which are referred to as three-point boundary value problems with the classical or the periodic boundary conditions.
