Abstract: Let *a, b, c, d, f, g* be analytic functions of two real variables *x, y* in the plane. Consider the elliptic equation (M) . The following areas will be investigated:

(1) the integral respresentations for solutions of (M) to the boundary of a simply connected domain *G*;

(2) reflection principles for (M) under nonlinear analytic boundary conditions;

(3) the sufficient conditions for the nonexistence and analytic continuation for the solutions of the Cauchy problem for (M).
