Abstract: Hyperbolic systems of second-order differential equations are considered in a domain with conical points at the boundary; in particular, the equations of elastodynamics are discussed. The asymptotics of solutions near conical points is studied. The ``hyperbolic character'' of the asymptotics shows itself in the properties of the coefficients (stress intensity factors) depending on time. Some formulas for the coefficients are presented and sharp estimates in Soboloev's norms are proved.
