Abstract

We prove that the Stokes operator with Robin boundary conditions is the generator of a bounded holomorphic semigroup on L^\infty_\sigma({\mathbb R}^n_+), which is even strongly continuous on the space \BUC_\sigma({\mathbb R}^n_+). Contrary to that result it is also proved that there exists no Stokes semigroup on L^1_\sigma({\mathbb R}^n_+), except if we assume the special case of Neumann boundary conditions. Nevertheless, we also obtain gradient estimates for the solution of the Stokes equations in L^1_\sigma({\mathbb R}^n_+) for all types of Robin boundary conditions.
