We show the effectiveness of viscositysolution methods in asymptotic problems for secondorder elliptic partial differential equations (PDEs) with a small parameter. Our stress here is on the point that the methods, based on stability results [3], [16], apply without hard PDE calculations. We treat two examples from [11] and [23]. Moreover, we generalize the results to those for Hamilton—Jacobi—Bellman equations with a small parameter.
