Asymptotic symmetry for a class of quasi-linear parabolic problems. (English) Zbl 1253.35009

Summary: We study the symmetry properties of the weak positive solutions to a class of quasillinear elliptic problems having a variational structure. On this basis, the asymptotic behaviour of global solutions of the corresponding parabolic equations is also investigated. In particular, if the domain is a ball, the elements of the \(\omega\) limit set are nonnegative radially symmetric solutions of the stationary problem.
