The Bergman method of solving boundary-value problems by means of particular solutions of the differential equation, which are constructed without reference to the boundary conditions, is applied to the problem of stability of thin elastic plates of an arbitrary simply connected shape and subject to any admissible boundary conditions. A direct method is presented for the construction of particular solutions that is applicable to both anisotropic and isotropic plates. Previous results of M. Z. Krzywoblocki for isotropic plates are obtained in a simple manner.
