The work focuses on the Γ-convergence problem and the convergence of minimizers for a functional defined in a periodic perforated medium and combining the bulk (volume distributed) energy and the surface energy distributed on the perforation boundary. It is assumed that the mean value of surface energy at each level set of test function is equal to zero. Under natural coercivity and -growth assumptions on the bulk energy, and the assumption that the surface energy satisfies -growth...
