Closed and non-closed (with planar edges) strictly convex surfaces with continuous curvatures are considered. Upper and lower bounds are obtained for the Gaussian curvature under various restrictions imposed on integral parameters of a surface: the diameter and width of the surface, the volume of the enclosed body, the maximum area of planar cross-sections of the enclosed body, the radius of a circumscribed or inscribed ball, the height of non-closed surface and the area enclosed by the planar boundary of the surface.

Mathematics Subject Classification 2000: 53A05.
Key words: strictly convex surfaces, Gaussian curvature, integral parameters.
