Abstract:
We consider the eigenvalue problem of the Stokes operator in a bounded
domain of $ {\bf R}^{3} $ bounded by two concentrical cylinders with homogeneous
Dirichlet boundary conditions on the curved part of the boundary and periodical conditions in
along the cylinder axis (in $x_{1}$-direction). We deduce by separation the correspondent
systems of ordinary differential equations and solve them explicitly
looking for solenoidal vector fields fulfilling the boundary conditions.
The investigation of possible cases yields either the explicit eigenfunctions
and eigenvalues or equations for the determination of the eigenvalues and
a general representation of the eigenfunctions. The completeness of the
the calculated system of eigenfunctions in ${\bf S}$ can be proven
analogous to the corresponding part
in the habilitation of the second author.

Keywords:
Stokes operator, eigenfunctions, concentrical cylinders
