### Abstract

We investigate the nonstationary Navier-Stokes equations for an exterior domain Ω ⊂ R^{3} in a solution class L^{s}(0,T; L ^{q}(Ω)) of very low regularity in space and time, satisfying Serrin's condition 2/s + 3/q = 1 but not necessarily any differentiability property. The weakest possible boundary conditions, beyond the usual trace theorems, are given by u|_{∂Ω} = g ε L^{s}(0,T; W^{-1/q,q}(∂Ω)), and will be made precise in this paper. Moreover, we suppose the weakest possible divergence condition k = div u ε L^{s} (0,T; L^{r}(Ω)), where 1/3 + 1/q = 1/r.
