## Abstract

Consider the stationary motion of an incompressible Navier-Stokes fluid around a rotating body K = ℝ ^{3}\Ω which is also moving in the direction of the axis of rotation. We assume that the translational and angular velocities U,ω are constant and the external force is given by f = div F. Then the motion is described by a variant of the stationary Navier-Stokes equations on the exterior domain Ω for the unknown velocity u and pressure p, with U, ω, F being the data. We first prove the existence of at least one solution (u, p) satisfying ∇u, p ∈ L _{3/2,∞}(Ω) and u ∈ L _{3,∞}(Ω) under the smallness condition on {pipe}U{pipe} + {pipe}ω{pipe} + {double pipe}F{double pipe} _{L3/2,∞}(Ω). Then the uniqueness is shown for solutions (u, p) satisfying ∇u, p ∈ L _{3/2,∞}(Ω) ∩ L _{q,r}(Ω) and u ∈ L _{3,∞}(Ω) ∩ L _{q*,r}(Ω) provided that 3/2 < q < 3 and F ∈ L _{3/2,∞}(Ω) ∩ L _{q,r}(Ω). Here L _{q,r}(Ω) denotes the well-known Lorentz space and q* = 3q/(3 - q) is the Sobolev exponent to q.
