ABSTRACT: We discuss the asymptotic behavior of variable exponent power-law functionals in the framework of Mosco convergence, and indicate some consequences to the analysis of a class of quasilinear parabolic problems which in the fast/slow diffusion limit models the growth of sandpiles whose critical slopes depend explicitly on the position in the sample. This is joint work with M. Mihailescu, M. Perez-Llanos, and J.D. Rossi.
