I've asked three questions here on relatively advanced but esoteric math topics, yet the questions themselves aren't really research level. In each of them I'm seeking some sort of explanation for why things are the way they are; I'm far from professional mathematician status (MathOverflow's stated audience).
But all three of my questions have gotten very little traction here: I've even earnt a Tumbleweed badge for one of them, while the others had <50 views total and none in the past few days until I brought them up in chat earlier today.
I thought that perhaps there's something wrong with how I ask my questions (too lengthy?) but when I asked on Chat, it was suggested to me that perhaps there simply isn't anyone on this site interested in those particular topics.
I've thus started thinking that it would perhaps be better for my questions to be migrated to MathOverflow, where perhaps they'll be more at home. But I can neither flag nor close them myself for migration with that goal in mind (apparently they are too old to be migrated). So could the following list of all my questions be migrated over to MO?
A question about why a particular primality test uses a particular procedure for selecting certain internal parameters, when said strategy has obvious flaws.
A question about whether it is possible, in general, to compute the distance between two LCG states "efficiently" (sublinearly), purely from their current value, and why my procedure appears to successfully do so for my particular application.
- I ended up self-answering this one, because I happened to encounter, in-person, a world expert on this topic.
A question about why an algorithm for fast convolution nowadays called "Winograd convolution" empirically exhibits such poor numerical stability, when 1) A comparable algorithm relying on the FFT does not and 2) Both algorithms are "correct" in the sense of giving the exactly correct answer when they are executed symbolically.
