The original article was retracted by the author in November 2018 due to an error in the proof of the main result.

There are a few examples of solutions to the incompressible Euler equations which are piecewise smooth with a discontinuity of the tangential velocity across a hypersurface evolving in time: the so-called vortex sheets. An important open problem is to determine whether or not these solutions can be obtained as zero-viscosity limits of the incompressible Navier-Stokes solutions in the energy space. In this paper we establish a couple of sufficient conditions similar to the one obtained by Kato in [Math. Sci. Res. Inst. Publ., 2, (1984), pp. 85-98] for the convergence of Leray solutions to the Navier-Stokes equations in a bounded domain with a no-slip condition toward smooth solutions to the Euler equation.
