limin$f_{x\in\Omega, x\to\infty}\frac{u(x)+1}{\dist(x,\partial\Omega)}=0,$
and then, in particular, for strictly sublinear supersolutions in
a domain $\Omega$ containing an open cone. In the special case that
$\Omega=\mathbb R^N$, or that $F$ is the Bellman operator, we show that the
same result holds for the whole class of nonnegative
supersolutions.
Our principal assumption on the operator $F$ involves its zero
and first order dependence when
$x\to\infty$. The same kind of assumption was introduced in a recent
paper
in collaboration with H. Berestycki and F. Hamel [4] to establish a Liouville type result for semilinear equations. The
strategy we follow to prove our main results is the same as in
[4], even if here we consider fully nonlinear
operators, possibly unbounded solutions and more general domains.
