It has been proved in [7] that the unique viscosity solution of
$ \begin{equation} \lambda u_\lambda+H(x,d_x u_\lambda) = c(H)\qquad\hbox{in $M$}, \;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;\;(*)\end{equation} $
uniformly converges, for
$ \lambda\rightarrow 0^+ $
, to a specific solution
$ u_0 $
of the critical equation
$ H(x,d_x u) = c(H)\qquad\hbox{in $M$}, $
where
$ M $
is a closed and connected Riemannian manifold and
$ c(H) $
is the critical value. In this note, we consider the same problem for
$ \lambda\rightarrow 0^- $
. In this case, viscosity solutions of equation (*) are not unique, in general, so we focus on the asymptotics of the minimal solution
$ u_\lambda^- $
of (*). Under the assumption that constant functions are subsolutions of the critical equation, we prove that the
$ u_\lambda^- $
also converges to
$ u_0 $
as
$ \lambda\rightarrow 0^- $
. Furthermore, we exhibit an example of
$ H $
for which equation (*) admits a unique solution for
$ \lambda<0 $
as well.
