##### Abstract

Distributions of the form

 $F\left(x,\lambda \right)=\frac{1}{\Gamma \left(\frac{\lambda +1}{2}\right)}\int \phantom{\rule{0.3em}{0ex}}|f\left(x,u\right){|}^{\lambda }g\left(x,u\right)\phantom{\rule{0.3em}{0ex}}du$ (1)

are considered, where $x$ and $u$ belong to ${R}^{p}$ and ${R}^{n}$ respectively. The parameter $\lambda$ is complex, and $F\left(x,\lambda \right)$ is evaluated for $Re\left(\lambda \right)<0$ by analytic continuation. Such integrals arise in solution formulas for partial differential equations. In case $n=1$ or $n=2$, $F$ is expressed in terms of homogeneous distributions of degree $>\lambda +\alpha$, where $\alpha$ is nonnegative and depends upon the geometry of the roots of $f$. The case of general $n$ is also treated, in case the Hessian of $f$ with respect to $u$ is different from zero. The results lead to asymptotic expansions of analogous multiple integrals.
