A procedure for solving the plane elastic problem for edge notches in a semi-infinite region is presented. A modification of the conventional Muskhelishvili technique is made by utilizing a mapping function which describes both the physical region and its reflection with respect to the straight edges. An effective power series development in the parameter plane is then described and illustrated by the numerical solution for semi-elliptical notches in a semi- infinite sheet in tension at infinity parallel to the edge.
