Abstract : We investigate stochastic homogenization for some degenerate quasilinear pa rabolic PDEs. The underlying nonlinear operator degenerates along the space variable, uniformly in the nonlinear term: the degeneracy points correspond to the degeneracy points of a reference diffusion operator on the random medium. Assuming that this reference diffusion operator is ergodic, we can prove the homogenization property for the quasilinear PDEs, by means of the first order approximation method. The (nonlinear) limit operator needn't be nondegenerate. Concrete examples are provided.
