A Decay Property of the Fourier Transform and its Application to the Stokes Problem

  • Y. Shibata
  • S. Shimizu


We prove an optimal relationship between the regularity of a function and the asymptotic behavior of its Fourier transform. As an application of this result we show L p -estimates for the Stokes semigroup in \( \Bbb R^n \) and \( {\Bbb R}_+^n \) when \( 1\leqq p\leqq \infty \).

Keywords. Fourier transform, decay property, Stokes flow, L1-estimate, $ L_{\infty}$-estimate.
