An introduction to homogenization

Speaker: Bidhan Chandra Sardar

Date: 17 March, 2015 (Tuesday)

Time: 09:15 pm – 10:15 pm

Venue: Lecture Hall I, Department of Mathematics


Abstract: The theory of homogenization helps to understand the multi-scale phenomena which has applications, like in composite materials, porous media, thin structures, rapidly oscillating boundaries and so on. In the process, various methods were developed to study homogenization problems. Some of them are: multi-scale expansion, test function method, compensated compactness, two-scale and multi-scale convergence, bloch wave analysis, method of unfolding and so on. In this talk we will discuss multi-scale expansion and two-scale convergence.
