The property of maximal Lp-regularity for parabolic evolution equations is investigated via the concept of R-sectorial operators and operator-valued Fourier multipliers. As application, we consider the L q-realization of an elliptic boundary value problem of order 2m with operator-valued coefficients subject to general boundary conditions. We show that there is maximal Lp-Lq-regularity for the solution of the associated Cauchy problem provided the top order coefficients are bounded and uniformly continuous.
