I am new to these forums - if I have posted in the wrong place please let me know.

Standard 3D Gaussian bell: z = e^-(x^2) * e^-(y^2)

From along the z-axis this looks "round".

I would like a generalized f(x, y) which would look egg-shaped from above - possibly quite distorted..

I thought at first that this would be easy - hours of experimentation later I have a new respect for this problem. I hope someone finds a simple solution - I would love to have missed something simple!

Thanks,
