The paper is devoted to systematic application of the potential method and the theory of integral equations to the two-dimensional problems of statics of an anisotropic elastic body. Chapter I deals with the Fredholm integral equations of second kind which are composed for all basic boundary value problems (except the mixed ones). Theorems on the existence and uniqueness of solution are proved. For the mixed problem, a singular integral equation with discontinuous coefficients is obtained; its investigation is carried out by the same method as in the isotropic case. Chapter II is wholly concerned with applications of integral equations constructed in Chapter I. Effective solutions of integral equations for concrete regions are given. By means of these solutions, the solutions of boundary value problems are presented by absolutely and uniformly convergent series or in quadratures. Solutions of many specific problems which have not been solved by other methods, are given here.
