Fractional Orlicz-Sobolev spaces and their limits

We establish versions for fractional Orlicz-Sobolev seminorms, built upon Young functions, of the Bourgain-Brezis-Mironescu theorem on the limit as s ->1^-, and of the Maz'ya-Shaposhnikova theorem on the limit as s->0^-, dealing with classical fractional Sobolev spaces. As regards the limit as s ->1^-, Young functions with an asymptotic linear growth are also considered in connection with the space of functions of bounded variation. Concerning the limit as s->0^+, Young functions fulfilling the \Delta_2-condition are admissible. Indeed, counterexamples show that our result may fail if this condition is dropped. This is a joint work with Andrea Cianchi, Lubos Pick and Lenka Slavikova.
