Validity and failure of the integral representation of Γ-limits of convex non-local functionals
We prove an integral-representation result for limits of non-local quadratic forms on H1 0 pΩq, with Ω a bounded open subset of Rd, extending the representation on C8c pΩq given by the Beurling-Deny formula in the theory of Dirichlet forms. We give a counterexample showing that a corresponding representation may not hold if we consider analogous functionals in W1,p0 pΩq, with p ‰ 2 and 1 ă p ď d.
