to the webpage of the workshop "New trends in homogenization" to be held in Roscoff
from November 27 to December 1, 2023.
Homogenization theory aims at the derivation of effective large-scale descriptions for PDEs with heterogeneous coefficients modelling a disordered background.
Over the last decades, it has become a fast-growing and very influential field of analysis — many old problems have been solved, while several ideas and techniques first developed for homogenization problems have found successful applications in other fields.
This workshop is the first large-scale event in many years devoted to homogenization theory and will gather experts working in various directions of the field.
The primary aim is to provide an overview of the main promising recent achievements and to collectively identify important open problems, challenging questions, and future needs of the theory and its applications.
More precisely, the week is divided into several short sessions devoted to specific topics:
"Homogenization and ..."
- Calculus of variations
- Computational mathematics
- Boundary layers
- Statistical physics
- Random walks in random environment
- Random drift
- High contrast materials
- When homogenization breaks down due to randomness
Each session is organized around a panoramic lecture, emphasizing future challenges, potentially followed by a few research presentations and discussions.
The workshop is organized by Antoine Gloria
and Mitia Duerinckx
with financial support from the European Research Council under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation
programme (Grant Agreement n°864066) and from the European Union (ERC, PASTIS, Grant Agreement n°101075879).
