Abstract : The report describes an investigation of the solutions of a sixth-order linear, ordinary differential equation system near a transition point in their asymptotic representations. The system is the one which describes the small, axisymmetric vibrations of an elastic thin shell. Representations valid in the transition region are found for all six solutions, connection formulas are stated, and the possibility of uniform asymptotic approximations is discussed briefly.
