 Apr 30 comment Is there a simpler function with this shape? @enthdegree Yes, inkscape is my go-to drawing tool. Apr 29 accepted Is there a simpler function with this shape? Apr 29 awarded Commentator Apr 29 comment Is there a simpler function with this shape? That's definitely an improvement over what I had, because the $a$ parameter can control the steepness of the curve. Apr 29 comment Is there a simpler function with this shape? @PrishChakraborty I suggest that you add this as an answer, and note that it could be $x^{1/x^y}$, where $0 \lt y \le 1$ controls how quickly the function rises. Although it's not asymptotic to y=1 like my drawing, and it's undefined at the origin, it does meet my needs and it's very simple. I'll mark your answer as useful, but I may select mathreadler's answer instead. Apr 29 comment Is there a simpler function with this shape? @MayankDeora, I've added some information to the question.

I tried smoothstep, both third and 5th order, but I couldn't get it to rise quickly near the origin. Apr 29 comment Is there a simpler function with this shape? Simpler in the sense that it's a short expression to write with symbols. Apr 29 asked Is there a simpler function with this shape?

Mar 7 comment Don't understand this maths pun $\sin\left(\frac{\pi}{2} - \theta\right)$ @Stefan LOL, I wasn't even going to include a link because I was afraid it would look like a spam post. But then I figured that this being a maths site, someone would ask me where to get the stickers.
