Abstract:

\newcommand{\eps}{\varepsilon}

In this paper we study the homogenization of the linear equation $$R(\eps{-1}x){\partial u\eps \over\partial t}- \textrm{div} (a(\eps{-1}x) \nabla u\eps) = f\ ,$$ with appropriate initialfinal conditions, where $R$ is a measurable bounded periodic function and $a$ is a bounded uniformly elliptic matrix, whose coefficients $a_{ij}$ are measurable periodic functions. Since we admit that $R$ may vanish and change sign, the usual compactness of the solutions in $L^2$ may not hold if the mean value of $R$ is zero.
