On a Stationary Problem of the Stokes Equation in an Infinite Layer in Sobolev and Besov Spaces

This paper is concerned with the stationary problem of the Stokes equation in an infinite layer and provides a condition on the external force sufficient for the existence of the solution. Since the Poiseuille flow is a solution to the homogeneous equation, the solution is not unique when p = ∞. It is also proved that, under some suitable conditions, solutions to the homogeneous equation are limited only to the Poiseuille flow.
