Homogenization on disconnected selfsimilar fractal sets in \(\mathbb{R}\). (English) Zbl 1073.60077
Summary: We construct diffusion processes on disconnected selfsimilar fractal sets as limits of suitably scaled random walks. We also consider homogenization problems on disconnected fractal sets. We treat environments whose means are not only finite but infinite.
