N2 - This paper is concerned with the stationary Navier-Stokes equations in exterior domains of dimension n ≥ 3, and provides a sufficient condition on the external force for the unique solvability. This condition is valid both in the case with small but nonzero velocity at infinity, and in the case with zero velocity at infinity. As a result it is proved that, if the external force satisfies this condition, the solution with nonzero velocity at infinity converges to the solution with zero velocity at infinity with respect to the weak-∗ topology of appropriate function spaces.
