Consideration is given to the contact without friction among an arbitrary number of elliptic punches or punches in the form of an elliptic paraboloid and an elastic half-space with Young's modulus as a power-law function of the distance from the edge. Asymptotic models of contact interaction are designed assuming that the distance between punches is large compared with their dimensions
