60) 2. For all r E I the set G ( r ) = {x;g(~, r) = O} is a compact Cl-manifold in 1Rn and for all x G G(r) always ~Txg(x, r) 5s o. (An orientation for G(v) is given by the normal field nr = IVxg(x, r)[-1V~eg(x, r) ). 61) g(x,~)<0 exists for all r G I and the derivative of this integral with respect to r is given by F'(T)= j f~(x, T) dx - j g(m,~)

32) [] From this result some special cases can be derived.

20) Gt is finite. 21) o, with A > 1 are all finite and have the asymptotic approximation 8 I(~) ,~ b F r r r A--~ exp(~f(c~)), a ---+ oo. 22) PP~OOF: For simplicity we assume that f ( a ) = 0. To show that all integrals I(A) are finite, we get an upper bound for them II(~)1 ~ /Ih(x){exp(~f(x)) dx t~ P <_ f [h(x)lexp(Af(x)) dx + f Ih(x)lexp(Af(x)) dx. 23) The first integral is finite. 24) o'd-e = Ih(x)l exp (f(x)) dx = O(exp(-)~6)). exp(-6(,~ - 1)) f c~+e But since due to assumption 3) the last integral is finite, we find that I I ( ~ ) 1 < for all ,~ > 0.
