## Abstract:

We consider a hyperbolic singular perturbation of the incompressible Navier Stokes equations in two space dimensions. The approximating system under consideration arises as a diffusive rescaled version of a standard relaxation approximation for the incompressible Euler equations. The aim of this work is to give a rigorous justification of its asymptotic limit toward the Navier Stokes equations using the modulated energy method.## References
