Given Ω ⊂ Rn open, connected and with Lipschitz boundary, and s ε (0, 1), we consider the functional, where E ⊂ Rn is an arbitrary measurable set. We prove that the functionals (1-s)Js(·,Ω) are equi-coercive in Lloc1(Ω) as s ↑ 1 and that, for every E ⊂ Rn measurable, where P(E,Ω) denotes the perimeter of E in Ω in the sense of De Giorgi. We also prove that as s ↑ 1 limit points of local minimizers of (1-s)Js(.,Ω) are local minimizers of P(·,Ω).
