Abstract: We study the nonlinear eigenvalue problem

\begin{equation*}-\text {div\ }(| \nabla u|^{p-2} \nabla u)=\lambda |u|^{p-2}u \quad \text {in}\; \Omega , \quad u=0\quad \text {on}\; \partial \Omega ,\tag *{(1) }\end{equation*}

where $p\in (1,\infty )$, $\Omega $ is a bounded smooth domain in $\pmb R^{N}$. We prove that the first and the second variational eigenvalues of (1) are continuous functions of $p$. Moreover, we obtain the asymptotic behavior of the first eigenvalue as $p\to 1$ and $p\to \infty $.
