Limits of anisotropic and degenerate elliptic problems

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • This paper analyzes the behavior of solutions for anisotropic problems of $(p_i)$-Laplacian type as the exponents go to infinity. We show that solutions converge uniformly to a function that solves, in the viscosity sense, a certain problem that we identify. The results are presented in a two-dimensional setting but can be extended to any dimension.
