### Stochastic homogenization: some recent theoretical and numerical contributions

**Le Bris, C ***(ENPC - École des Ponts ParisTech)*

Thursday 01 April 2010, 10:00-11:00

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute

#### Abstract

The talk will overview some recent contributions on several theoretical aspects and numerical approaches in stochastic homogenization, for the modelling of random materials.
In particular, some variants of the theory of classical stochastic homogenization will be introduced. The relation between such homogenization problems and other multiscale problems in materials science will be emphasized. On the numerical front, some approaches will be presented, for acceleration of convergence in stochastic homogenization (representative volume element, variance reduction issues, etc) as well as for approximation of the stochastic problem when the random character is only a perturbation of a deterministic model. The talk is based upon a series of joint works with X. Blanc (CEA, Paris), PL. Lions (College de France, Paris), and F. Legoll, A. Anantharaman, R. Costaouec, F. Thomines (ENPC, Paris).
