Short summary
We introduce a new representation of particle size distribution, in which a power law form is used in addition to the most commonly used log-normal representation. The new representation is beneficial in simulations involving the initial steps of aerosol formation, where power law behaviour is typically seen, instead of less accurate pure log-normal representation or computationally more expensive sectional representation.
