Abstract: Let $ u$ be a positive harmonic function on the unit disk. Bourgain showed that the radial variation

$\displaystyle \mathrm {var}(u\vert _{[0,re^{i\theta }]}) = \int _0^1\vert u'(re^{i\theta })\vert\,dr $

of $ u$ is finite for many points $ \theta $, and moreover, that the set

$\displaystyle \mathcal {V}(u)=\big \{e^{i\theta }\,:\, \mathrm {var}\big (u\vert _{[0,re^{i\theta }]}\big )< +\infty \big \} $

is dense in the unit circle $ \mathbb{T}$ and its Hausdorff dimension equals one. In the paper, this result is generalized to a class of smooth domains in $ \mathbb{R}^d$, $ d\geq 3$.
