ABSTRACT
We study the limit behaviour of some nonlinear monotone equations, such as: $-div(A^\epsilon \varphi (B^\epsilon \nabla U^\epsilon)) = F^\epsilon$ , in a domain $\Omega^\epsilon$ which is thin in some directions (e.g. $\Omega^\epsilon$ is a plate or a thin cylinder). After rescaling to a fixed domain $\Omega$ , the above equation is transformed into: $-div^\epsilon(a^\epsilon \varphi (b^\epsilon \nabla^\epsilon u^\epsilon)) = f^\epsilon$ , with convenient operators $div^\epsilon$ and $\nabla^\epsilon$ . Assuming that $a^\epsilon$ and the inverse of $b^\epsilon$ have particular forms and satisfy suitable compensated compactness assumptions, we prove a closure result, that is we prove that the limit problem has the same form. This applies in particular to the limit behaviour of nonlinear monotone equations in laminated plates.

    We establish a logarithmic-type rate of convergence for the homogenization of fully nonlinear uniformly elliptic second-order pde in strongly mixing media with similar, i.e., logarithmic, decorrelation rate. The proof consists of two major steps. The first, which is actually the only place in...

    We propose a new method for the homogenization of hysteresis models of plasticity. For the one-dimensional wave equation with an elasto-plastic stress-strain relation we derive averaged equations and perform the homogenization limit for stochastic material parameters. This generalizes results of...
