Title: On the inviscid problem for the Navier-Stokes equations

Abstract: Whether the solution of the Navier-Stokes equation converges 
to the solution of the Euler equation as the viscosity vanishes 
is one of the fundamental problems in fluid dynamics. In the talk, 
we will review current results on this problem. We will also present 
a recent result, joint with Vlad Vicol and Fei Wang, which shows 
that the inviscid limit holds for the initial data that is analytic 
only close to the boundary.
