Homogenization of a Class of Stochastic Partial Differential Equations

Part of the Progress in Nonlinear Differential Equations and Their Applications book series (PNLDE, volume 5)


It is well known that the classical homogenization theory of elliptic and parabolic equations can be derived by probabilistic methods, through the limit of diffusion stochastic processes (see A. BENSOUSSAN - J.L. LIONS - G. PAPANICOLAOU [4]).
