Abstract [en]

We consider energy functionals, or Dirichlet forms, [GRAPHICS] for a class G of bounded domains Omega subset of R-N, with epsilon>0 a fine structure parameter and with symmetric conductivity matrices A(epsilon) = (a(ij)(epsilon)) is an element of L-loc(infinity)(R)(NxN) which are functions only of the first coordinate x(1) and which are locally uniformly elliptic for each fixed epsilon>0. We show that if the functions (of x(1)) b(11)(epsilon) = 1/a(11)(epsilon), b(1j)(epsilon) = a(1j)(epsilon)/a(11)(epsilon) (j greater than or equal to 2), b(ij)(epsilon) = a(ij)(epsilon) - a(i1)(epsilon)a(1j)(epsilon)/ a(11)(epsilon) (i, j greater than or equal to 2) converge weakly* as measures towards corresponding limit measures b(ij) as epsilon --> 0, if the (1,1)-coefficient m(11)(epsilon) of (A(epsilon))(-1) is bounded in L-loc(1)(R) and if none of its weak* cluster measures has atoms in common with b(ii), i greater than or equal to 2, then the family J(epsilon) = {J(Omega)(epsilon)}(Omega is an element of g) Gamma-converges in a local sense towards a naturally defined limit family J = {J(Omega))(Omega is an element of G) as epsilon-->0. An alternative way of formulating the conclusion is to say that the energy densities (A(epsilon)del u,del u) Gamma-converge in a distributional sense towards the corresponding limit density. Writing J(Omega)(epsilon) in terms of B-epsilon = (b(ij)(epsilon)) it becomes [GRAPHICS] and the definition of J(Omega) and the limit density (A del u, del u) is obtained by properly replacing the b(ij)(epsilon) is an element of L-loc(infinity)(R) by the limit measures b(ij) and making sense to everything for u in a certain linear subspace of L-loc(2)(R-N).
