We suppose that V: \\\\R^n \\\\to \\\\R possesses an (n-1)-dimensional compact manifold M of critical points, and we prove the existence of arbitrarity slow periodic orbits. When the period tends to infinity these orbits, rescaled in time, converge to some closed geodesics on M.1 aMalchiodi, Andrea uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/1511
