We consider a discrete elliptic equation with random coefficients $A$, which (to fix ideas) are identically distributed and independent from grid point to grid point $x\in\mathbb{Z}^d$. On scales large w.\ r.\ t.\ the grid size (i.\ e.\ unity), the solution operator is known to behave like the solution operator of a (continuous) elliptic equation with constant deterministic coefficients. These symmetric ``homogenized'' coefficients $A_{hom}$ are characterized by % $$ \xi\cdot A_{hom}\xi…
