We set up generalized Cauchy-Pompeiu and Bochner-Martinelli- Koppelman representation formulas for arbitrary pairs (\(\mathfrak{D}, \Phi\)), where \(\mathfrak{D}\) is a first-order homogeneous differential operator on ℝn with coefficients in a Banach algebra \(\mathfrak{A} \), and ф is a smooth \(\mathfrak{A} \)-valued function on ℝn \ { 0} homogeneous of degree 1 –n, n ≥2. Within our general framework we prove that the integral representation formulas include the expected components, as well as some remainders that are explicitly computed in terms of \(\mathfrak{A} \) and ф. As a consequence, we obtain necessary and sufficient conditions that ensure the existence of genuine Cauchy-Pompeiu or Bochner-Martinelli-Koppelman formulas for such operator-kernel pairs (\(\mathfrak{D}, \Phi\)). Properly interpreted in a Clifford algebra setting these conditions prove valuable in investigating Dirac and Cauchy-Riemann operators.
