I get a message of ''slow convergence'' or ''numerical integration stopped due to loss of precision'' ''suspect: high oscillatory integrand''.
I am trying to integrate functions that are non zero only for certain intervals, and have max values of ~ 10^17 when non zero. They are similar with DiracDelta but are continuos. I agree they are oscillatory.
Basicly the function is Sqrt[1-(x-xo)^2] * constant.

Does anybody have any suggestions on how to make Mathematica to better behave, without giving: ''Numerical integration stopped due to lost of precision !!''
Thanks
