Second-order homogenization of periodic Schr\"odinger operators with highly oscillating potentials

  title={Second-order homogenization of periodic Schr\"odinger operators with highly oscillating potentials},
  author={'Eric Cances and Louis Garrigue and David Gontier},
We consider the homogenization at second-order in ε of Lperiodic Schrödinger operators with rapidly oscillating potentials of the form H = −∆+ε−1v(x, ε−1x)+W (x) on L(R), where L is a Bravais lattice of R, v is (L × L)-periodic, W is L-periodic, and ε ∈ N−1. We treat both the linear equation with fixed right-hand side and the eigenvalue problem, as well as the case of physical observables such as the integrated density of states. We illustrate numerically that these corrections to the…

An Optimal Factorization Preconditioner for Periodic Schrödinger Eigenstates in Anisotropically Expanding Domains
It is proved that the easy-to-calculate limit eigenvalue can be used in a shift-and-invert preconditioning strategy to bound the number of eigensolver iterations uniformly.

Abstract For a family of elliptic operators with periodically oscillating coefficients, $-{\rm div}(A(\cdot /\varepsilon )\nabla )$ with tiny ε > 0, we comprehensively study the first-order
First-order corrections to the homogenised eigenvalues of a periodic composite medium. A convergence proof
Let λ e be a Dirichlet eigenvalue of the ‘periodically, rapidly oscillating’ elliptic operator –∇·(a( x/e)∇ ) and let ∇ be a corresponding (simple) eigenvalue of the homogenised operator –∇·( A∇) .
Numerical quadrature in the Brillouin zone for periodic Schrödinger operators
An error analysis of several widely-used quadrature rules and smearing methods for Brillouin zone integration is performed and the assumptions implicit in these methods are identified and rigorously prove error bounds.

For symmetric coefficient fields with only short-range correlations, quantified through a logarithmic Sobolev inequality for the ensemble, it is proved that when measured in weak spatial norms, the solution to the homogenized equation provides a higher-order approximation of the solution of the equation with oscillating coefficients.

This paper focus on the properties of boundary layers in periodic homogenization in rectangular domains which are either fixed or have an oscillating boundary. Such boundary layers are highly
