On the Principal Eigencurve of the $p$-Laplacian: Stability Phenomena We show that each point of the principal eigencurve of the nonlinear problem $$-\Delta_{p}u-\lambda m(x)|u|^{p-2}u=\mu|u|^{p-2}u \quad \text{in } \Omega,$$ is stable (continuous) with respect to the exponent $p$ varying in $(1,\infty)$; we also prove some convergence results of the principal eigenfunctions corresponding.
