Abstract: In this paper we investigate the solvability of linear systems of partial differential equations with constant coefficients in a field of positive characteristic. In particular, we prove that consistence and compatibility are equivalent, which answers a question of Ehrenpreis and extends a result of Jia. The problem of uniqueness is also considered.
