## Abstract

The Navier-Stokes equation for compressible viscous fluid is considered on the half space in R^{3} under the zero-Dirichlet boundary condition for the momentum with initial data near an arbitrarily given equilibrium of positive constant density and zero momentum. Time decay properties in L^{2} norms for solutions of the linearized problem are investigated to obtain the rate of convergence in L^{2} norms of solutions to the equilibrium when initial data are sufficiently close to the equilibrium in H^{3} ∩ L^{1}. Some lower bounds are derived for solutions to the linearized problem, one of which indicates a nonlinear phenomenon not appearing in the case of the Cauchy problem on the whole space.
