Let \(u^{\epsilon}\) be the solution of the Dirichlet problem \(-\Delta u^{\epsilon}=f\) in \(\Omega^{\epsilon}\), \(u^{\epsilon}=0\) on \(\partial \Omega^{\epsilon}\), where \(\Omega^{\epsilon}\) is obtained by removing from \(\Omega\) small holes \(T^{\epsilon}_ i\), periodically distributed with a period \(2\epsilon\) in the directions of the axes, each of the holes \(T^{\epsilon}_ i\) being obtained from a model hole by reducing it at the size \(\epsilon^{N/(N-2)}.\) These \(u^{\epsilon}\) converge weakly to the solution u of \(-\Delta u+\mu u=f\) in \(\Omega\), \(u=0\) on \(\partial \Omega\). The following error estimate \(\| u^{\epsilon}-(1-p^{\epsilon})u\|_{H^ 1_ 0(\Omega)}\leq Const. \epsilon)\) is proved, where \(p^{\epsilon}\) is the capacity potential of each small hole \(T^{\epsilon}_ i\) in the ball of radius \(\epsilon\) with the same center.
