The dynamics of fluids, i.e. liquids and gases, is an important part of the continuum mechanics. This lecture is devoted to the qualitative analysis of mathematical models of motion of a viscous incompressible fluid around a compact body B, translating and rotating in the fluid with given time-independent translational and angular velocities u and ω. The translation can be considered, without the loss of generality, to be parallel to the x3-axis. We shall study the time-periodic Stokes system and Oseen system in the whole space, in an exterior domain and we will investigate the strong solution, weak solution and very weak solution of the problem in Lq setting with corresponding weight describing the behavior in the large distance [3, 4, 5]. Moreover, we shall discuss the fundamental solution of the Oseen ”rotating” system and the asymptotic decay for the Oseen case and also for nonlinear case [1, 2]. In this part we are starting from the fundamental solution introduced by Guenther and Thomann [7], which is different from approach introduced by Galdi and his col. see e.g. [6]. Finally, we shall discuss the problem of motion of rigid body (which is not prescribed) in viscous fluid and the problem of collisions see [8].
