This paper deals with the homogenization of elliptic systems with Dirichlet boundary condition, when the coefficients of both the system and the boundary data are ε-periodic. We show that, as ε → 0, the solutions converge in L 2 with a power rate in ε, and identify the homogenized limit system. Due to a boundary layer phenomenon, this homogenized system(More)
In the lines of the recent paper [5], we establish various ill-posedness results for the Prandtl equation. By considering perturbations of stationary shear flows, we show that for some linearizations of the Prandtl equation and some C ∞ initial data, local in time C ∞ solutions do not exist. At the nonlinear level, we prove that if a flow exists in the(More)
We consider the homogenization of elliptic systems with ε-periodic coefficients. Classical two-scale approximation yields a O(ε) error inside the domain. We discuss here the existence of higher order corrections, in the case of general polygonal domains. The corrector depends in a non-trivial way on the boundary. Our analysis extends substantially previous(More)
This note is devoted to the effect of topography on geophysical flows. We consider two models derived from shallow water theory: the quasigeostrophic equation and the lake equation. Small scale variations of topography appear in these models through a periodic function, of small wavelength ε. The asymptotic limit as ε goes to zero reveals homogenization(More)
