We describe a symbolic framework for treating linear boundary problems with a generic implementation in the Theorema system. For ordinary differential equations, the operations implemented include computing Green’s operators, composing boundary problems and integro-differential operators, and factoring boundary problems. Based on our factorization approach, we also present some first steps for symbolically computing Green’s operators of simple boundary problems for partial differential equations with constant coefficients. After summarizing the theoretical background on abstract boundary problems, we outline an algebraic structure for partial integro-differential operators. Finally, we describe the implementation in Theorema, which relies on functors for building up the computational domains, and we illustrate it with some sample computations including the unbounded wave equation.
