Reduced basis finite element heterogeneous multiscale method for quasilinear elliptic homogenization problems

A reduced basis finite element heterogeneous multiscale method (RB-FE-HMM) for a class of nonlinear homogenization elliptic problems of nonmonotone type is introduced. In this approach, the solutions of the micro problems needed to estimate the macroscopic data of the homogenized problem are selected by a Greedy algorithm and computed in an offline stage. It is shown that the use of reduced basis (RB) for nonlinear numer- ical homogenization reduces considerably the computational cost of the finite element heterogeneous multiscale method (FE-HMM). As the precomputed microscopic functions depend nonlinearly on the macroscopic solution, we introduce a new a posteriori error estimator for the Greedy algorithm that guarantees the convergence of the online New- ton method. A priori error estimates and uniqueness of the numerical solution are also established. Numerical experiments illustrate the efficiency of the proposed method
