Abstract: In $ L_2(\mathbb{R}^d;\mathbb{C}^n)$, a class of matrix second order differential operators $ \mathcal {B}_\varepsilon $ with rapidly oscillating coefficients (depending on $ \mathbf {x}/\varepsilon $) is considered. For a fixed $ s>0$ and small $ \varepsilon >0$, approximation is found for the operator $ \exp (-\mathcal {B}_\varepsilon s)$ in the $ (L_2\to L_2)$- and $ (L_2\to H^1)$-norm with an error term of order of $ \varepsilon $. The results are applied to homogenization of solutions of the parabolic Cauchy problem.
