We prove the existence of a principal eigenvalue associated to the
∞-Laplacian plus lower order terms and the Neumann boundary
condition in a bounded smooth domain. As an application we get
uniqueness and existence results for the Neumann problem and a
decay estimate for viscosity solutions of the Neumann evolution
problem.
