Maximum Modulus Estimates for the Linear Steady Stokes System



A maximum modulus estimate for the Stokes system in bounded domains of ℝn (n ≥ 2) is established via methods of hydrodynamical potential theory. The method is based on the unique solvability of the boundary integral equations' system resulting from the double layer potential ansatz together with a projection onto the normal field on the boundary.
