The paper studies a bounded symmetric operator Aε in L2(Rd) with(Aεu)(x)=ε−d−2∫Rda((x−y)/ε)μ(x/ε,y/ε)(u(x)−u(y))dy; here ε is a small positive parameter. It is assumed that a(x) is a non-negative L1(Rd) function such that a(−x)=a(x) and the moments Mk=∫Rd|x|ka(x)dx, k=1,2,3, are finite. It is also assumed that μ(x,y) is Zd-periodic both in x and y...

It is assumed that $a(x)$ is a...

In this work we consider a mathematical model of the water treatment process and determine the effective characteristics of this model. At the microscopic length scale we describe our model in terms of a lattice random walk in a high-contrast periodic medium with absorption. Applying then the upscaling procedure we obtain the macroscopic model for...

The paper deals with stochastic homogenization of a system modeling immiscible compressible two-phase, such as water and gas, flow in random porous media. The problem is written in terms of the phase formulation, i.e. the saturation of one phase and the pressure of the second phase are primary unknowns. This formulation leads to a coupled system co...

In this paper, we establish a homogenization result for a nonlinear degenerate system arising from two-phase flow through fractured porous media with periodic microstructure taking into account the temperature effects. The mathematical model is given by a coupled system of two-phase flow equations, and an energy balance equation. The microscopic mo...

mathematical model is given by a...

We study the large time behaviour of the fundamental solution of parabolic equations with an elliptic part being non-local convolution type operator. We assume that this operator is a generator of a Markov jump process, and that its convolution kernel decays at least exponentially at infinity. The fundamental solution shows rather different asympto...

The paper deals with jump generators with a convolution kernel. Assuming that the kernel decays either exponentially or polynomially, we prove a number of lower and upper bounds for the resolvent of such operators. In particular we focus on sharp estimates of the resolvent kernel for small values of the spectral parameter. We consider two applicati...

The paper gives a rigorous description, based on mathematical homogenization theory, for flows of solvents with not charged solute particles under osmotic pressure for periodic porous media permeable for solute particles. The effective Darcy type equations for the flow under osmotic pressure distributed within the porous media are derived. The effe...

The paper deals with jump generators with a convolution kernel. Assuming that the kernel decays either exponentially or polynomially we prove a number of lower and upper bounds for the resolvent of such operators. We consider two applications of these results. First we obtain pointwise estimates for principal eigenfunction of jump generators pertur...

The paper deals with homogenization problem for a non-local linear operator with a kernel of convolution type in a medium with a periodic structure.

describe the structure of the limit functional. Also, we study the convergence
of the corresponding gradient flow.

We consider reversible diffusions in random environment and prove the
Einstein relation for this model. It says that the derivative of the effective
velocity under an additional local drift equals the diffusivity of the model
without drift. The Einstein relation is conjectured to hold for a variety of
models but is proved insofar only in particular...
