We follow-up on our works devoted to homogenization theory for linear second-order elliptic equations with coefficients that are perturbations of periodic coefficients. We have first considered equations in divergence form in [6], [7], [8]. We have next shown, in our recent work [9], using a slightly different strategy of proof than in our earlier works, that we may also address the equation aijiju=f. The present work is devoted to advection–diffusion equations: aijiju+bjju=f. We prove, under suitable assumptions on the coefficients aij, bj, 1i,jd (typically that they are the sum of a periodic function and some perturbation in Lp, for suitable p<+), that the equation admits a (unique) invariant measure and that this measure may be used to transform the problem into a problem in divergence form, amenable to the techniques we have previously developed for the latter case.


Nous continuous ici notre série de travaux sur l'homogénéisation d'équations linéaires elliptiques du second ordre dont les coefficients sont des perturbations de coefficients périodiques. Nous avons considéré les équations sous forme divergence dans [6], [7], [8], et, grâce à une stratégie de preuve légèrement différente, l'équation aijiju=f dans notre travail plus récent [9]. Ici, nous étudions les équations d'advection–diffusion : aijiju+bjju=f. Nous montrons, sous des hypothèses adéquates sur les coefficients aij, bj, 1i,jd (typiquement qu'ils sont somme d'une fonction périodique et d'une fonction dans Lp, pour p<+ convenable), que l'équation admet une (unique) mesure invariante qui peut être utilisée pour transformer l'équation en une équation sous forme divergence, équation qu'on
