### 1. Introduction

As is known to all, a lot of mathematical models, which are abstracted from engineering technical problems such as heat conduction of composite material and seepage in composite medium, can be attributed to models for solving boundary value problems of composite ordinary differential system. Thus acquiring the solution to the boundary value problem is very important for solving practical engineering problems.

At the beginning of this century, the thought of similar structure of the solution began to form. Li Shunchu and others studied solutions to some second order linear homogeneous ordinary differential equations [1-8]^{[1]}, partial differential equations which can be transformed into ordinary differential equations ^{[9, 10, 11, 12]} and some seepage equations in oil and gas reservoir engineering^{ }[13-26]^{[13]} respectively. Some gratifying results have been achieved that solutions to boundary value problems of differential equations can be expressed as a continued fraction or continued fraction product form (i.e. solutions have the similar structure) by introducing the similar kernel functions, while structure of solutions only are associated with the non-homogeneous boundary condition, and similar kernel functions are associated with the governing equation and other homogeneous boundary condition.

Based on the above study, this paper will study a class of boundary value problems of the composite first Weber system. Firstly, we structure functions of guide solution of left region by using two linear independent solutions to governing equation of left region of the boundary value problem and structure functions of guide solution of right region by using two linear independent solutions to governing equations of right region of the boundary value problem respectively. Secondly, we structure the similar kernel function of right region by using functions of guide solution of right region and coefficients of the right homogeneous boundary condition and structure the similar kernel function of left region by using functions of guide solution of left region, coefficients of two connection conditions and the right similar kernel function. Finally, the solution of left region to boundary value problem is obtained by assembling coefficients of the left non-homogeneous boundary condition and the similar kernel function of left region. The solution of right region to boundary value problem is obtained by assembling coefficients of the left non-homogeneous boundary condition, similar kernel functions of left and right region, coefficients of two connection conditions and functions of guide solution of left region.

In this paper, boundary value problem of the composite first Weber system is studied as follows:
