Homogenization of a semilinear heat equation. (English. French summary) Zbl 1372.35024
The authors study the homogenization of a semilinear heat equation with vanishing diffusivity and with an oscillating positive right-hand side (some sort of potential, chemical reaction, etc.). According to the rate between the frequency of oscillations in the production term (r.h.s.) and the vanishing factor in front of the diffusivity, the authors obtain different regimes in the limit evolution and discuss the locally uniform convergence of the solutions to the effective problem. The interesting feature of the mathematical model is that in the strong diffusion regime the effective operator is discontinuous in the gradient entry.
