Within the framework of microscopic three-cluster algebraic models with possible consideration of clustering types (D + n) + Λ, (D + Λ) + n, and (n + Λ) + D, the properties of discrete spectrum states of hypernucleus 4ΛH and continuous spectrum states in the 3H + Λ channel are studied. It is shown that the cluster structure is almost completely determined by the clustering (D + n) + Λ with a rather appreciable effect from the polarization of the binary subsystem (D + n) due to its interaction with the Λ particle.
