Regularity of solutions to a non homogeneous boundary value problem for general Stokes systems in R n +

  • H. Beirão da Veiga


We give a simple and very complete proof of the existence of a strong (H2) solution to the non-homogeneous problem (1.1) under the non homogeneous boundary conditions (1.6). Here we consider the half-space case Ω = Rn+, n≥ 3, see theorem 1.2. This regularity result was previously obtained by Solonnikov and Ščadilov in reference [33] for the classical Stokes system (μ=λ=0, g(x)=0) in the 3−D homogenous case (a=0, b=0) and Ω a suitable open subset of R3.
