According to a result of Bouleau-Hirsch, the law of an ℝ n -valued Wiener functional belonging to the Gaussian-Dirichlet space W 1,2has a density with respect to Lebesgue measure λn. On the other hand there exists a classical formula for changing variables, the coarea Federer formula for Lipschitz functions. The goal of this chapter is to compute the exact value of this density by means of an extension of the coarea formula to the Wiener space, or more generally to an abstract Wiener space.
