The author considers the Navier-Stokes equation \[ (1)\quad \partial_ tu-\nu \Delta u+(u\cdot \partial)u+\partial p=0,\quad div u=0 \] for \(t\geq 0\), \(x\in R^ 2\) and the Euler equation \[ (2)\quad \partial_ tu+(u\cdot \partial)u+\partial p=0,\quad div u=0. \] The basic theorem runs as follows. Let \(s>2\), \(a^{\nu}\), \(a^ 0\in H^ s\) and let \(\lim_{\nu \to 0}\| a^{\nu}-a^ 0\|_{H^ s}=0\), then there are unique \(c([0,\infty);H^ s)\)-solutions of (1) and (2) with \(u^{\nu}(0)=a^{\nu}\), \(u^ 0(0)=a^ 0\). Moreover, \(u^{\nu}\to u^ 0\) in \(C([0,T];H^ s)\) for any \(T>0\).
