Well, the question is in the title.
So, what would/could it be?

If you mean Gaussian distribution, regular arrays (like the packing of atoms) can produce a normal distribution pattern ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bean_machine

What do you think about the following derivation of energy distribution of a localized energy whirl:
In any radial direction away from center, the energy decreases. At each point , energy has a certain value . Along the radius, the energy does change: . This is force, by definition.
At some given radius , that force has a certain value . Both force and energy do not change along the circle of that given radius . And that is the case in each given value of a radius, along which energy is distributed. Hence:
