Summary: We consider the single-layer potential associated to the fundamental solution of time-dependent Oseen system. It is shown this potential belongs to \(L^2 (0,\infty,H^1 (\Omega)^3)\) and to \(H^1 (0,\infty,V')\) if the layer function is in \(L^2 (\partial\Omega \times (0,\infty)^3)\). (\(\Omega\) denotes the complement of a bounded Lipschitz set; \(V\) denotes the set of smooth solenoidal functions in \(H^1_0 (\Omega)^3\).) This result means that the usual weak solution of time-dependent Oseen function with zero initial data and zero body force may be represented by a single-layer potential, provided a certain integral equation involving the boundary data may be solved.
