An Introduction to Homogenization

Doina Cioranescu and Patrizia Donato

Oxford Lecture Series in Mathematics and Its Applications

Homogenization theory is a powerful method for modeling the microstructure of composite materials, including superconductors and optical fibers. This book is a complete introduction to the theory. It includes background material on partial differential equations and chapters devoted to the steady and non-steady heat equations, the wave equation, and the linearized system of elasticity.
