```Thank you for your answer to my question.
Here is a reproducible example of the problem:

> A<-2
> B<--1
> C<-1
> linf<-c(-10,-1,0.0003)
> lsup<-c(10,1,0.0004)
> Integrand1<-function(v)
{exp(-1*(A*v[1]^2-B*v[1]+C+(((v[1]-v[2])^2)/(2*v[3]^2))))/(K*v[3])}
Warning message:
Ifail=2, lenwrk was too small. -- fix adapt() !
Check the returned relerr! in: adapt(3, linf, lsup, functn = Integrand1)

The problem is related to the small range of the third variable,
(0.0003-0.0004), so I tried the change of variables z2<-z/(max(z)-min(z)):

> rang=0.0004-0.0003
> linf[3]<-linf[3]/rang
> lsup[3]<-lsup[3]/rang
> Integrand1<-function(v)
{exp(-1*(A*v[1]^2-B*v[1]+C+(((v[1]-v[2])^2)/(2*(rang^2)*(v[3]^2)))))/(K*v[3])}
> #With the change of variables, the constant "rang" appears in the function.
Warning message:
Ifail=2, lenwrk was too small. -- fix adapt() !
Check the returned relerr! in: adapt(3, linf, lsup, functn = Integrand1)

And the problem persists, probably because of the small value of "rang",
what can be checked below:

> rang<-.01
> Integrand1<-function(v)
{exp(-1*(A*v[1]^2-B*v[1]+C+(((v[1]-v[2])^2)/(2*(rang^2)*(v[3]^2)))))/(K*v[3])}
> #The same function as before, with a bigger value for "rang"
> Const
[1] 8.766637e-05

How can I evaluate the integral, even with small values of rang?
Thanks a lot for your help.
Best regards.
