Hey, This is a very random question. Let's say, that a regular person who dosn't know very much about math just *HAPPENS* to stumble upon something mathematical and unheard off.... and works a little bit on it... Cases like these are not unheard off...many inventions and/or discoveries happened by accident. So, if somebody happens to find something mathematical by accident and has no idea how to write it up in a proper publishable way...then how would the person get it published? Do they just write it up as best as they could and submit it to a Journal? See... I told you it was completely random!
