Title: Uniform estimates in homogenization and applications

Abstract: In a seminal paper of 1987, M. Avellaneda and F.H. Lin have introduced a powerfull method to show uniform Hölder and Lipschitz estimates for elliptic systems with oscillating coefficients. In this talk, I will investigate some consequences of these estimates for the large scale behavior of potentials and the asymptotics of boundary layers in homogenization. I will also address a generalization of the Lipschitz estimate to domains with oscillating boundary. The latter is a joint work with C. Kenig.
