comment What is the meaning of $(x^2+y^2)^n$? Is this an already known geometric object?
Thanks. But i am asking only about the LHS. I have edited the question to make it more clear

@ JJacquelin, yes. there is no = in it. i do not want to compare but understand generalization to higher dimensions.

comment How to define a surface $z = f(x,y)$ with flat region at centre and sigmoidally tapering towards the edges?
So, we have a piecewise defined function covering the 2D plane (well, actually a rectangle since limits are imposed for x and y). What you mean is we can define the above piecewise defined function as a single analytical equation involving sums, if we use the step function. Right? But can you please show an example?(sorry for the amateurish request, i lack the rigor to make this formal)

comment How to define a surface $z = f(x,y)$ with flat region at centre and sigmoidally tapering towards the edges?
I get the idea. I am curious however if we can define this as a single analytical continuos function over the plane(within the limits)?

Thanks for your answer. But the logistic function might satisfy my requirements for the tapering part.

Yes. Sorry. So i should have phrased it 'moments of any order, but non-zero. I ve edited the question.

thanks for your answer. But every distribution whose support is bounded has moments of every order might not be true. As an example, consider a distribution which is symmetric. In this case, some of the 3rd order moments become zero. Is it not?

And can we ensure those moments are always non-zero even if the support is possitive i.e., for the supports [a,b] and [c,d]?
