Is it worth migrating this question to MO, from math.SE?

It seems elementary but did not get any response on MSE even after 10 days.

  • $\begingroup$ @ThomasRot : There are currently 61 featured question on MSE, and me putting a bounty may not be of much help as there isn't even a cursory acknowledgment of the question there. I am already a low Rep user! $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ My instinctual feeling is that it would not survive trial by MO if it were migrated. But maybe someone reading the meta post here will go to MSE to help out. $\endgroup$

I don't think the question would be good at MO. I would vote to close it as off-topic, and believe so would many others. I see no particular research angle to the question, and I would not consider it otherwise interesting to research mathematicians, either.

That said, I gave you something of an answer at MSE. I don't know if my way qualifies as a nice way of writing your distribution, but I don't see how one could do much better. If you (or anyone else, for that matter) want to discuss mathematical details, let us do so where the question is.
