Abstract. We consider a general second order uniformly elliptic differential operator $L$ and also the set $\Theta$ of all open sets (not neccessarily smooth) in the unit ball of $\R^n$. We define a metric $d$ in this set (up to an equivalence relation $\sim$) that makes the space $(\Theta/\sim, d)$ a complete metric space. We show that the principal eigenvalue and eigenfunction of $L$ are continuous with the metric $d$. Similar results are obtained for the solutions of the equation $Lv=f$.
