- for any $x\in {\mathbb{R}}^{n}$, $\underset{t\to \infty}{lim}v(x,t)$ exists if and only if $\underset{t\to \infty}{lim}\frac{n\mathsf{\Gamma}\left(\frac{n}{2}\right)}{2{\pi}^{\frac{n}{2}}{t}^{n}}\underset{\left|x\right|<t}{\int}v(x,0)dx$ exists; if those limits exist, then they are equal to each other.
