I have asked this question three weeks ago here

https://math.stackexchange.com/questions/2998601/does-this-oscillatory-integral-exist/2998930#2998930 but received no relevant answers.

Let $n\geq 2$ and consider the improper integral $$I:=\int_{\mathbb{R}^{n}}F(x)dx$$ where $F$ is a continuous function.

If $I$ exists then

$$I=\lim_{R\rightarrow +\infty}\int_{B_{R}}F(x)dx,$$ where $B_{R}$ is a ball with radius $R$. So if this limit does not exist we know that the integral does not exist. Does the existence of this limit imply the existence of the integral ?

Motivation:

I am interested in the existence of the integral $$\int_{\mathbb{R}^{3}}\frac{e^{\dot{\imath}|x-y|^2}}{1+|y|}dy.$$

Using spherical coordinates (I do not even know if we are allowed to change variables here. Are we ? ) $$\int_{\mathbb{R}^{3}}\frac{e^{\dot{\imath}|x-y|^2}}{1+|y|}dy= \int_{\mathbb{S}^{2}}\int_{0}^{\infty} \frac{e^{\dot{\imath}|\rho\omega-x|^2}\rho^2}{1+\rho}d\rho d\omega\\ =e^{i|x|^{2}}\int_{\mathbb{S}^{2}}\int_{0}^{\infty} \frac{e^{\dot{\imath} (\rho^2-2x\cdot \omega\,\rho)}\rho^2}{1+\rho}d\rho d\omega.$$

Observations:

1-The inner integral does not exist for any $x$ and $\omega$.

2-We can not change order of integration

3-The limit

$$\lim_{R\rightarrow \infty}\int_{\mathbb{S}^{2}}\int_{0}^{R} \frac{e^{\dot{\imath} (\rho^2-2x\cdot \omega\,\rho)}\rho^2}{1+\rho}d\rho d\omega$$ exists. Simply apply the very nice formula [Grafakos, classical Fourier analysis-Appendix D]: $$\int_{\mathbb{S}^{n-1}} F(x.\omega)d\omega=c \int_{-1}^{1}(\sqrt{1-s^2})^{n-3} F(s|x|)ds.$$ then benefit from the oscillation in both variables $\rho$ and $\omega$ and integrate by parts in both variables.

Any ideas how to handle this ?

Thank you so much
