Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a homogenization result for L variational problems in general stationary ergodic random environments. By introducing a generalized notion of distance function (a special solution of an associated eikonal equation) and demonstrating a connection to absolute minimizers of the variational problem, we obtain the homogenization result as a consequence of the fact that the latter homogenizes in random environments.
