This paper treats the Stokes problem in exterior Lipschitz-continuous domains of ℝ2 and ℝ3. Using the weighted Sobolev spaces of Hanouzet (in ℝ3) and Giroire (in ℝ2), we establish the inf-sup condition between the velocity and pressure spaces. This fundamental result shows that the variational Stokes problem is well-posed in those spaces. In the last paragraph, we obtain additional regularity of the solution when the data are smoother.
