The linearized problem for the compressible Navier-Stokes equation around a given constant state is considered in a periodic layer of $\mathbb{R}^{n}$ with $n\geq2$, and spectral properties of the linearized semigroup is investigated. It is shown that the linearized operator generates a $C_0$-semigroup in $L^2$ over the periodic layer and the time-asymptotic leading part of the semigroup is given by a $C_0$-semigroup generated by an $n-1$ dimensional elliptic operator with constant coefficients that are determined by solutions of a Stokes system over the basic period domain.

Keywords: compressible Navier–Stokes equation, Stokes system, Bloch wave decomposition, resolvent estimate
