We construct finite volume schemes, on unstructured and irregular grids and
in any space dimension, for non-linear elliptic equations of the p-Laplacian kind: -div(|∇u|p-2∇u) = ƒ
(with 1 < p < ∞). We prove the existence and uniqueness of the approximate solutions,
as well as their strong convergence towards the solution of the PDE.
The outcome of some numerical tests are also provided.
