Abstract: The boundary integral equation method in terms of real variables is applied to solve the interior and exterior Dirichlet and Neumann problems of plane elasticity. In the exterior case, a special far-field pattern for the displacements is considered, without which the classical scheme fails to work. The connection between the results obtained by means of this technique and those of the direct method is indicated.
