Abstract.The aim of this paper is the construction and representation of solutions $u,p$ to the homogeneous Stokes equations

\begin{displaymath}
-\Delta u+\nabla p\:=\:0\quad\mbox{in}\quad G_e,\quad \nabl...
...G_e, \quad u\:=\:\Phi
\quad\mbox{on}\quad \Gamma ,\eqno{(S)}
\end{displaymath}

with methods of hydrodynamical potential theory. Here $G_e\: \subset
R^n \ (n\geq 2)$ is an exterior domain with boundary $\Gamma
=\partial G_e\: \in C^2$, and $\Phi \in C^0(\Gamma )$ is some prescribed boundary value.
