A closure theorem for gAMMA-convergence and H-convergence with applications to non-periodic homogenization
(2024-02-29) Braides, Andrea; Dal Maso, Gianni; Le Bris, Claude
In this work we examine the stability of some classes of integrals, and in particular with respect to homogenization. The prototypical case is the homogenization of quadratic energies with periodic coe cients perturbed by a term vanishing at in nity, which has been recently examined in the framework of elliptic PDE.We use localization techniques and higher-integrability Meyers-type results to provide a closure theorem by gamma-convergence within a large class of integral functionals. From such result we derive stability theorems in homogenization which comprise the case of perturbations with zero average on the whole space. The results are also extended to the stochastic case, and specialized to the G-convergence of operators corresponding to quadratic forms. A corresponding analysis is also carried on for non-symmetric operators using the localization properties of H-convergence. Finally, we treat the case of perforated domains with Neumann boundary condition, and their stability.

We consider a question posed in [1], namely the blow-up of the PDE ut + (b(t, x)u1+k)x = uxx when b is uniformly bounded, Lipschitz and k = 2. We give a complete answer to the behavior of solutions when b belongs to the Lorentz spaces b ∈ Lp,∞, p ∈ (2,∞], or bx ∈ Lp,∞, p ∈ (1,∞].
Homogenisation problems for free discontinuity functionals with bounded cohesive surface terms
(2023-07-11) Dal Maso, Gianni; Toader, Rodica; mathematics
We study stochastic homogenisation problems for free discontinuity func- tionals under a new assumption on the surface terms, motivated by cohesive fracture models. The results are obtained using a characterization of the limit functional by means of the asymptotic behaviour of suitable minimum problems on cubes with very simple boundary conditions. An important role is played by the subadditive ergodic theorem.
Discrete approximation of nonlocal-gradient energies
(2023-01-22) Braides, Andrea; Causin, Andrea; Solci, Margherita; mathematics
We study a discrete approximation of functionals depending on nonlocal gradients. The discretized functionals are proved to be coercive in classical Sobolev spaces. The key ingredient in the proof is a formulation in terms of circulant Toeplitz matrices.
