Homogenization in a thin domain with an oscillatory boundary


Arrieta Algarra, José María and Pereira, Marcone C. (2011) Homogenization in a thin domain with an oscillatory boundary. Journal de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées, 96 (1). pp. 29-57. ISSN 0021-7824

In this paper we analyze the behavior of the Laplace operator with Neumann boundary conditions in a thin domain of the type where the function G(x,y) is periodic in y of period L. Observe that the upper boundary of the thin domain presents a highly oscillatory behavior and, moreover, the height of the thin domain, the amplitude and period of the oscillations are all of the same order, given by the small parameter ϵ.
