    Abstract

    We consider the motion of a viscous incompressible liquid crystal flow in the N-dimensional whole space. We prove the global well-posedness of strong solutions for small initial data by combining the maximal (Formula presented.) regularities and (Formula presented.) decay properties of solutions for the Stokes equations and heat equations. As a result, we also proved the decay properties of the solutions to the nonlinear equations.
