## Abstract

In this paper, we consider the boundary value problem of Stokes operator arising in the study of free boundary problem for the Navier-Stokes equations with surface tension in a uniform W^{3−1/r}_{r} domain of N-dimensional Euclidean space ℝ^{N} (N ⩾ 2, N < r < ∞). We prove the existence of R-bounded solution operator with spectral parameter λ varying in a sector Σ_{ε,λ0} = {λ ∈ ℂ | | arg λ| ⩽ π − ε, |λ| ⩾ λ_{0}} (0 < ε < π/2), and the maximal L_{p}-L_{q} regularity with the help of the R-bounded solution operator and the Weis operator valued Fourier multiplier theorem. The essential assumption of this paper is the unique solvability of the weak Dirichlet-Neumann problem, namely it is assumed the unique existence of solution p ∈ W^{1}_{q} (Ω) to the variational problem: (∇p,∇ϕ)_{Ω} = (f,∇ϕ)_{Ω} for any ϕ ∈ W^{1}_{q′}(Ω) with 1 < q < ∞ and q′ = q/(q − 1), where W^{1}_{q} (Ω) is a closed subspace of Ŵ^{1}_{q,Γ} (Ω) = {p ∈ L_{q,loc}(Ω) | ∇p ∈ L_{q}(Ω)^{N}, p|_{Γ} = 0} with respect to gradient norm ∥∇ · ∥_{Lq(}_{Ω)} that contains a space W^{1}_{q,}_{Γ} (Ω) = {p ∈ W^{1}_{q} (Ω) | p|_{Γ} = 0}, and Γ is one part of boundary on which free boundary condition is imposed. The unique solvability of such weak Dirichlet-Neumann problem is necessary for the unique existence of a solution to the resolvent problem with uniform estimate with respect to spectral parameter varying in (λ_{0},∞), which was proved in Shibata [13]. Our assumption is satisfied for any q ∈ (1,∞) by the following domains: half space, perturbed half space, bounded domains, layer, perturbed layer, straight cube, and exterior domains with W^{1}_{q} (Ω) = Ŵ^{1}_{q,Γ} (Ω).
