# On the stability problem for the Boussinesq equations in weak-$L^p$ spaces

• We consider the Boussinesq equations in either an exterior domain in $\mathbb{R}^{n}$, the whole space $\mathbb{R}^{n}$, the half space $\mathbb{R}_{+}^{n}$ or a bounded domain in $\mathbb{R}^{n}$, where the dimension $n$ satisfies $n \geq 3$. We give a class of stable steady solutions, which improves and complements the previous stability results. Our results give a complete answer to the stability problem for the Boussinesq equations in weak-$L^{p}$ spaces, in the sense that we only assume that the stable steady solution belongs to scaling invariant class $L_{\sigma }^{(n,\infty)}\times L^{(n,\infty)}$. Moreover, some considerations about the exponential decay (in bounded domains) and the uniqueness of the disturbance are done.
