Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We consider the convergence in the L2 norm uniformly in time of the Navier-Stokes equations with Dirichlet boundary conditions to the Euler equations with slip boundary conditions We prove that if the Oleinik conditions of no back-flow in the trace of the Euler flow and of a lower bound for the Navier-Stokes vorticity is assumed in a Kato-like boundary layer then the inviscid limit holds.
