 The property of maximal \(L_p\)regularity for parabolic evolution equations is investigated via the concept of \(\mathcal R\)sectorial operators and operatorvalued Fourier multipliers. As application, we consider the \(L_q\)realization of an elliptic boundary value problem of order \(2m\) with operatorvalued coefficients subject to general boundary conditions. We show that there is maximal \(L_p\)\(L_q\)regularity for the solution of the associated Cauchy problem provided the top order coefficients are bounded and uniformly continuous.
