Title: Field extensions and extensions of linear differential operators

Let $K\subset R\subset P$ be a tower of fields, $N$ be a $P$-module, and $\Delta : R\to N$ be a $K$-linear differential operator. The aim of this paper is to investigate whether the operator $\Delta$ has an extension to $P$, i.e. if there exists a differential operator $\Dp{}: P\to N$ such that $\Dp{}|_R=\Delta$.
