abstract = {
Homogenization of periodic functionals, whose integrands possess possibly multi-well structure, is treated in terms of Young measures. More precisely, we characterize the Γ-limit of sequences of such functionals in the set of Young measures, extending the relaxation theorem of Kinderlherer and Pedregal. We also make precise the relationship between our homogenized density and the classical one.
