In this thesis the problem of a toroidal shell of elliptical profile is considered from the point of view of the small deflection theory of thin shells of revolution leaded symmetrically with respect to their axis. Solutions of such problems are found by applying methods of asymptotic integration of a differential equation involving a large parameter multiplied by a function which vanishes at certain point.
