I am a graduate student studying astrophysics at Princeton. I received my bachelor's in physics and mathematics from Caltech (2011).

My primary interest is in general relativistic magnetohydrodynamics simulations of black hole accretion.

comment Weibull distribution
For $0 < \nu < 1$ you seem to be asking for a Dirac delta function plus something else. That's a pretty tall order for just altering $k$ and $\lambda$. Or are you allowing more extreme modifications?

comment Self-adjoint and nonpositive differential operators
@MichaelScott Welcome to Physics StackExchange! As comments are somewhat ephemeral, it's always best to edit pertinent information into the body of the post. I also added the DOI link to protect against link rot, as per our (somewhat unofficial but very sound) policy.
