- Abstract (EN)
- This thesis is split into two parts, the first one is concerned with some problems in stochastic homogenization and the second addresses a problem in singular SPDEs. In the part on stochastic homogenization we are interested in developing large-scale regularity theories for random linear elliptic operators by using estimates for the homogenization error to transfer regularity from the homogenized operator to the heterogeneous one at large scales. In the whole-space case this has been done by Gloria, Neukamm, and Otto through means of a homogenization-inspired Campanato iteration. Here we are specifically interested in boundary regularity and as a model setting we consider random linear elliptic operators on the half-space with either homogeneous Dirichlet or Neumann boundary data. In each case we obtain a large-scale regularity theory and the main technical difficulty turns out to be the construction of a sublinear homogenization corrector that is adapted to the boundary data. The case of Dirichlet boundary data is taken from a joint work with Julian Fischer. In an attempt to head towards a percolation setting, we have also included a chapter concerned with the large-scale behaviour of harmonic functions on a domain with random holes assuming that these are 'well-spaced'. In the second part of this thesis we would like to provide a pathwise solution theory for a singular quasilinear parabolic initial value problem with a periodic forcing. The difficulty here is that the roughness of the data limits the regularity the solution such that it is not possible to define the nonlinear terms in the equation. A well-posedness result, therefore, comes with two steps: 1) Giving meaning to the nonlinear terms and 2) Showing that with this meaning the equation has a solution operator with some continuity properties. The solution theory that we develop in this contribution is a perturbative result in the sense that we think of the solution of the initial value problem as a perturbation of the solution of an associated periodic problem, which has already been handled in a work by Otto and Weber. The analysis in this part relies entirely on estimates for the heat semigroup. The results in the second part of this thesis will be in an upcoming joint work with Felix Otto and Jonas Sauer.
