Can this site contains Physics's Math question?

+1
−0

I found the question. This is completely related to Physics only Calculus is Math. So, does the question belong to Physics Codidact or, this is site where we can ask any type of Math question.

To start, what belongs on the Physics Codidact is up to the people active on the Physics Codidact. The question seems to have been well received there, and I suspect that it would also have been well-received here.

Math questions of any sort are welcome here. However, when asking a question motivated from physics here, it should be asked in a way that it can be answered without physics knowledge. A question like "Does the canonical quantization of this theory have these properties?" would likely be off-topic here, because it assumes readers will know what canonical quantization is. On the other hand, a question like "Does this system of differential equations resulting from canonical quantization of this theory have these properties?" would likely be on-topic (depending on "these properties"), because it can be answered without knowing what canonical quantization is. The original question would probably be perfectly fine on the Physics Codidact.

Where a question is asked also communicates what types of answers are expected. Asked on Physics Codidact, many assumptions may be taken for granted and answers are likely to restrict themselves to physically relevant scenarios. Asked on Math Codidact, non-physical generalizations are likely to be considered which will lead to potentially different answers.

I got your point. In SE sites, they said that homework-and-exercises is off-topic. Is it off-topic here also? Where can I read about off-topic in this site? Have Codidact Community created any documentation/page of it? Istiak‭ about 2 months ago

Whether or not it's off-topic is up to the community - for reference, we created a category on physics for 'problems', where people essentially ask for help with their attempts to whatever problem (not 'the solution', just help), which is similar-ish to the idea of homework and exercises Mithrandir24601‭ about 2 months ago

@Istiak Right now, the only real written thing that gives an idea for the scope is the discussion at the [Site Proposal | https://meta.codidact.com/posts/277002] but even this should be taken as a starting place. The policy for homework questions hasn't been set but is likely to be vaguely similar to Math.SE's. That is to say they aren't a priori off-topic, but the asker does need to communicate that they care about more than just an answer for a grade to get a good response.
