Regular elliptic equations of second order with measurable coefficients are discussed from the viewpoint of the existence of derivatives of their solutions in a given form. Non-divergent equations (a) and divergent equations (b) are considered separately. In case (a) it is proved that the solution u of the above type of elliptic equations whose operator is of the form \[ P=\sum^{n}_{i,j=1}a_{ij}(x)\partial^ 2/\partial x_ i\partial x_ j+\sum^{n}_{i=1}b_ i(x)\partial /\partial x_ i, \] defined in the unit sphere \(Q^ 1\) has a derivative of order 2. Under certain conditions the form of this derivative is predicted. A convex function v in \(Q^ 1\) also has the derivative of order 2. In case (b) the solution u has an ordinary derivative for \(x_ 0\in Q^ 1\).
