In the past two decades, starting with the pioneering work of Bourgain, Brezis, and Mironescu, there has been widespread interest in characterizing Sobolev and BV (bounded variation) functions by means of non-local functionals. In my recent work I have studied two such functionals: a BMO-type (bounded mean oscillation) functional, and a functional related to the fractional Sobolev seminorms. I will discuss some of my results concerning the limits of these functionals, the concept of Gamma-convergence, and also open problems.
