Abstract: Let $ {\Omega ^j}$ be domains in $ {R^n}$. For each $ j$ we are given a system $ {{\mathbf{D}}^j}$ of linear constant coefficient operators and a function $ {f^j}$ on $ {\Omega ^j}$ satisfying $ {{\mathbf{D}}^j}{f^j} = 0$. When the $ {f^j}$ satisfy certain compatibility conditions on the intersections $ {\Omega ^j} \cap {\Omega ^{j'}}$ then we can extend them so as to be solutions of $ {{\mathbf{D}}^j}$ on larger domains. As a consequence of our methods we are able to sharpen Hartogs' theorems to allow for continuation of solutions of overdetermined systems over noncompact sets.
