1. Homogenization of some problems in hydrodynamic lubrication involving rough boundaries
Abstract : This thesis is devoted to the study of some homogenization problems with applications in lubrication theory. It consists of an introduction, five research papers (I–V) and a complementary appendix.Homogenization is a mathematical theory for studying differential equations with rapidly oscillating coefficients.

2. Homogenization theory with applications in tribology
Abstract : Homogenization is a mathematical theory for studying differential equations with rapidly oscillating coefficents. Many important problems in physics with one or several microscopic length scales give rise to this kind of equations. Hence there is a need for methods that enable an efficient treatment of such problems. READ MORE

3. Pressuredriven flows in thin and porous domains
Abstract : The present thesis is devoted to the derivation of Darcy's law for incompressible viscous fluid flows in perforated and thin domains by means of homogenization techniques. The problem of describing asymptotic flows in porous/thin domains occurs in the study of various physical phenomena such as filtration in sandy soils, blood circulation in capillaries, lubrication and heationg/cooling processes.

4. Homogenization of some new mathematical models in lubrication theory
Abstract : We consider mathematical modeling of thin film flow between two rough surfaces which are in relative motion. For example such flows take place in different kinds of bearings and gears when a lubricant is used to reduce friction and wear between the surfaces. READ MORE
