Let Ω be a bounded Lipschitz domain in Rn. We develop a new approach to the invertibility on Lp (∂ Ω) of the layer potentials associated with elliptic equations and systems in Ω. As a consequence, for n ≥ 4 and frac(2 (n - 1), (n + 1)) - ε < p < 2 where ε > 0 depends on Ω, we obtain the solvability of the Lp Neumann type boundary value problems for second order elliptic systems. The analogous results for the biharmonic equation are also established.
