Correlation structure of the corrector in stochastic homogenization
Jean-Christophe Mourrat and Felix Otto
Recently, the quantification of errors in the stochastic homogenization of divergence-form operators has witnessed important progress. Our aim now is to go beyond error bounds, and give precise descriptions of the effect of the randomness, in the large-scale limit. This paper is a first step in this direction. Our main result is to identify the correlation structure of the corrector, in dimension 3 and higher. This correlation structure is similar to, but different from that of a Gaussian free field.
