In this paper we highlight how the Fonseca and MÃ¼ller blow-up technique is particularly well suited for homogenization problems. As examples we give a simple proof of the nonlinear homogenizationâ€¦ (More)

We give a Î“-convergence result for vector-valued nonlinear energies defined on periodically perforated domains. We consider integrands with n-growth where n is the space dimension, showing that thereâ€¦ (More)

We examine intergenerational mobility in the very long run, across generations that are six centuries apart. We exploit a unique dataset containing detailed information at the individual level forâ€¦ (More)

We give a general Î“-convergence result for vector-valued non-linear energies defined on perforated domains for integrands with p-growth in the critical case p = n. We characterize the limit extraâ€¦ (More)

this discrete model can be approximated by a continuous energy defined on special functions with bounded variation. In fact, if we limit the interactions in the sum to the nearest neighbors in theâ€¦ (More)

This paper deals with the description of the overall effect of pinning conditions in discrete systems. We study a variational problem on the discrete in which pinning sites are modeled as networkâ€¦ (More)

We give a Î“-convergence result for vector-valued nonlinear energies defined on periodically perforated domains. We consider integrands with p-growth for p converging to the space dimension n. Weâ€¦ (More)
