Abstract: We obtain existence, uniqueness, and stability results for the modified 1-homogeneous infinity Laplace equation

$\displaystyle -\Delta_\infty u -\beta \vert Du\vert = f, $

subject to Dirichlet or mixed Dirichlet-Neumann boundary conditions. Our arguments rely on comparing solutions of the PDE to subsolutions and supersolutions of a certain finite difference approximation.
