The function $G(x) =(4\pi t)^{-d/2} \int_{\mathbb{R}^d} e^{\frac{-|x-y|^2}{4t}}|y|^k dy$ can be controlled when $|x|\rightarrow \infty$

In this paper, Lemma 6, Pinsky proves that $$H(x) =(4\pi t)^{-d/2} \int_{\mathbb{R}^d} e^{\frac{-|x-y|^2}{4t}}(1+|y|)^m \, dy$$ attains its maximum in $x=0$ for $m<0$. This can also be proven using ...
