Abstract: Consider a rigid body moving in a threedimensional NavierStokes liquid with a prescribed velocity and a nonzero angular velocity that are constant when referred to a frame attached to the body. By linearizing the associated equations of motion, we obtain the Oseen ( ) or Stokes () equations in a rotating frame of reference. We will consider the corresponding steadystate wholespace problem. Our main result in this first part concerns elliptic estimates of the solutions in terms of data in . Such estimates have been established by R. Farwig in Tohoku Math. J., Vol. 58, 2006, for the Oseen case, and R. Farwig, T. Hishida, and D. Müller in Pacific J. Math., Vol. 215 (2), 2004, for the Stokes case. We introduce a new approach resulting in an elementary proof of these estimates. Moreover, our method yields more details on how the constants in the estimates depend on and . In part II we will establish similar estimates in terms of data in the negative order homogeneous Sobolev space .
