Abstract: In this paper we develop and analyze a bootstrapping algorithm for the extraction of potentials and arbitrary derivatives of the Cauchy data of regular three-dimensional second order elliptic boundary value problems in connection with corresponding boundary integral equations. The method rests on the derivatives of the generalized Green's representation formula, which are expressed in terms of singular boundary integrals as Hadamard's finite parts. Their regularization, together with asymptotic pseudohomogeneous kernel expansions, yields a constructive method for obtaining generalized jump relations. These expansions are obtained via composition of Taylor expansions of the local surface representation, the density functions, differential operators and the fundamental solution of the original problem, together with the use of local polar coordinates in the parameter domain. For boundary integral equations obtained by the direct method, this method allows the recursive numerical extraction of potentials and their derivatives near and up to the boundary surface.
