Lecture in the Summer term 2018

Stochastic homogenization

  • Lecturer: Felix Otto
  • Date: Wednesday, 09:15 - 11:00
  • Room: MPI MiS, A3 01
  • Language: English
  • Target audience: MSc students, PhD students, Postdocs
  • Prerequisites: Basic knowledge in elliptic differential equations is helpful, but the course is self-contained in the sense that it provides an independent introduction into Calderon-Zygmund theory, for instance.

Abstract:

Stochastic homogenization is about the effective large-scale behavior of random heterogeneous media. I will mostly focus on the homogenization of elliptic equations in divergence-form. One focus is on a large-scale regularity theory, in particular Calderon-Zygmund theory (estimates in Lp-spaces) and Schauder theory (estimates in Hölder spaces).
