Summer School on Recent Advances in the Theory of Homogenization
June 18-29, 2012

Department of Mathematics, University of Chicago


A two-week summer school to take place at the University of Chicago.


Homogenized and stochastic models for equations with highly oscillatory coefficients (Guillaume Bal, Columbia University)

Nonperiodic homogenization of elliptic equations stochastic and deterministic approaches (Claude Le Bris, Cermics, Paris)

Homogenization of lattice systems (Andrea Braides, University of Roma 2)

Periodic homogenization of elliptic problems, Part 2 (Carlos Kenig, University of Chicago)

Periodic homogenization of elliptic problems, Part 1 (Zhongwei Shen, University of Kentucky)
