Abstract: Let $ \vartheta $ denote the formal adjoint of the Cauchy-Riemann operator $ \overline \partial $ on $ {{\mathbf{C}}^n}$, and let $ N$ denote the Kohn-Neumann operator on the unit ball in $ {{\mathbf{C}}^n}$. The operator $ \vartheta \; \circ \;N$ provides a natural fundamental solution for $ \overline \partial f = g$ on the ball. It is our purpose to present the kernel $ P$ for this operator $ \vartheta \; \circ \;N$ explicitly--the coefficients are exhibited as rational functions.
