We treat three problems on a two-dimensional ``punctured periodic domain{''}: we take Omega(r)= (-L, L)(2) \textbackslash{}rK, where r > 0 and K is the closure of an open connected set that is star-shaped with respect to 0 and has a C-1 boundary. We impose periodic boundary conditions on the boundary of Omega= (-L, L)(2), and Dirichlet boundary conditions on partial derivative(rK). In this setting we consider the Poisson equation, the Stokes equations, and the time-dependent Navier-Stokes equations, all with a fixed forcing function f, and examine the behavior of solutions as r -> 0. In all three cases we show convergence of the solutions to those of the limiting problem, i.e. the problem posed on all of Omega with periodic boundary conditions. (AU)
