If is a polynomial of degree , the integral is convergent. To see that, write for .

Dear girdav,

Thanks a lot for your reply. I appreciate it.

Would you mind detailing your suggestion that uses for ? Indeed, the latter uses positive but is negative, and it seems to me easier to prove that the integral in question is finite by using rather than .

You get an upper bound after taking the inverse.
