The zero-viscosity limit of the 2D Navier-Stokes equations. (English) Zbl 1141.35431

Summary: It is shown that in a radially symmetric configuration, the zero-viscosity limit of solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations satisfies the associated Euler equations. An ancillary result on continuous dependence of solutions on \(\nu \) is also established.
