The role of the processes of reconnection of vortex filaments in the structure and dynamics of vortex tangle in turbulent HeII has been studied. The evolution of a network of vortex loops has been investigated on the basis of the “kinetic” equation for the distribution function of the number of loops in the space of their lengths. The vortex tangle properties are discussed on the basis of the exact solution obtained for this equation.
