In the present paper, we consider a nonself-adjoint fourth-order differential operator with the periodic boundary conditions. We compute new accurate asymptotic expression of the fundamental solutions of the given equation. Then, we obtain new accurate asymptotic formulas for eigenvalues and eigenfunctions.
