Admissible functions in two-scale convergence. (English) Zbl 0886.35018

Summary: The two-scale convergence method was developed by G. Nguetseng, W. E and G. Allaire in connection with homogenization problems. We introduce a rather large class of “admissible” functions containing Carath√©odory integrands of both kinds (continuous on \(\Omega\) or on \(Y\)) and prove a useful continuity result. Through all the paper we use the notion, introduced by W. E, of “two-scale” Young measures. This also provides natural proofs of some quantitative results of Huygens type.
