Abstract

We study the generalized stationary Stokes system in a bounded domain in the plane equipped with perfect slip boundary conditions. We show natural stability results in oscillatory spaces, i.e., Hölder spaces and Campanato spaces, including the border-line spaces of bounded mean oscillations (BMO) and vanishing mean oscillations (VMO). In particular, we show that, under appropriate assumptions, gradients of solutions are globally continuous. Since the stress tensor is assumed to be governed by a general Orlicz function, our theory includes various cases of (possibly degenerate) shear thickening and shear thinning fluids; including the model case of power law fluids. The global estimates seem to be new even in the case of the linear Stokes system. We include counterexamples that demonstrate that our assumptions on the right-hand side and on the boundary regularity are optimal.
