In this paper, we study how solutions to elliptic problems with
periodically oscillating coefficients behave in
the neighborhood of the boundary of a domain. We extend the
results known for flat boundaries to domains with curved boundaries
in the case of a layered medium. This is done by generalizing the
notion of boundary layer and by defining boundary correctors which
lead to an approximation of order ε in the energy norm.
