Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


For a family of second-order elliptic operators with rapidly oscillating periodic coefficients, we study the asymptotic behavior of the Green and Neumann functions, using Dirichlet and Neumann correctors. As a result we obtain asymptotic expansions of Poisson kernels and the Dirichlet-to-Neumann maps as well as optimal convergence rates in Lp and W1,p for solutions with Dirichlet or Neumann boundary conditions.
