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.
Linear elliptic homogenization for a class of highly oscillating non-periodic potentials
We consider an homogenization problem for the second order elliptic equation −∆u + 1 ε V (./ε)u + νu = f when the highly oscillatory potential V belongs to a particular class of non-periodic
