We establish existence and pointwise estimates of fundamental solutions and Green’s matrices for divergence form, second order strongly elliptic systems in a domain \(\Omega \subseteq {\mathbb{R}}^n, n \geq 3\) , under the assumption that solutions of the system satisfy De Giorgi-Nash type local Hölder continuity estimates. In particular, our results apply to perturbations of diagonal systems, and thus especially to complex perturbations of a single real equation.
