Asymptotic behaviour of a micropolar fluid flow in a thin domain with a rough boundary

Motivated by lubrication problems, we study the behavior of a micropolar fluid flow in a 2D domain which thickness is of order ε. We prove first the existence and uniqueness of a solution for the (Pε) problem and we establish a priori estimates. Then we use the two-scale convergence technique to pass to the limit and we prove that the limit problem admits a unique solution.
