Abstract
Let I be a compact ddimensional manifold, X : I R a Gaussian
process with regular paths and FI(u) , u R the probability distribution
function of suptI X(t).
We prove that under certain regularity and nondegeneracy conditions, FI
is a C1function and FI is absolutely continuous, and that FI FI satisfy
certain implicit equations that permit to give bounds for their values and to
compute their asymptotic behaviour as u +. This is a partial extension
