Where to publish a few little articles?

I've been toying around with a few problems in hamiltonian mechanics that I came up with, they're nothing special but nonetheless I think they're fairly interesting. Are there any student-friendly journals etc. which might accept these sorts of articles? [I haven't written anything up yet, btw 😜]

One of our strengths here at PF is to provide an environment for practising various skills. So you could write an Insight Article here, where you practice writing an article, i.e. with a lot of footnotes, a list of references, graphics or whatsoever, and last but not least: writing in a way others can understand without studying it first.

The (dis?)advantage is, that you will probably get feedback from your readers, which cannot be guaranteed to be nice. :cool:

I don't know how you can say that when I haven't even written it up yet. :wink:

Statistically it's true of most papers. It was definitely true about my thesis.

Wow, PF can be so depressing. 😂 I was really excited about this. Can't you just pat me on the back, ...
Depends. What's your favorite football club? I have the impression you're a gunner.
... give me a cookie and tell me everything's going to be okay?
Log out and come back as a guest. You will be offered a lot of cookies!

What shall I say? I have an observation about Lie algebras (plus many examples and formulas) that must be worth something, nobody else knows it, and I am too stupid to make it a knife, although I'm convinced it could be done.

I have found a professor on math exchange whose field of competence is Lie algebras, and I wish I could contact and ask him what he thinks, but I don't want to appear as a crackpot. A funny side note is, that his father was a professor of mine!

So I am handcuffed, watch this thing, but cannot do anything about it.
