We will study several important results in the classical theory of periodic homogenization:



1. The periodic homogenization theory for second order linear elliptic equations.



2. The compactness method for uniform estimates in homogenization.



3. The periodic homogenization theory for first order Hamilton-Jacobi equations.







Calculus, linear algebra, basic knowledge of functional analysis and partial differential equations.
