Abstract: We introduce multi-scale Young measures to deal with problems where multi-scale phenomena are relevant. We prove some interesting representation results that allow the use of these families of measures in practice, and illustrate its applicability by treating, from this perspective, multi-scale convergence and homogenization of multiple integrals.
