Update from Manishearth: Now that migration to Math.SE seems to be reasonably high, I'm bumping this to see if we can get the migration path now.

One for the SE team: can we get an official migration path for moving questions from physics.SE to math.SE? A non-negligible fraction of the off-topic questions we get here are purely mathematical in nature and mbq or I wind up moving them to the math site.

Current stats (26 June, 2013):

In the past 90 days, 25 questions have been migrated from Phy.SE to Math.SE, with a 4% rejection rate (that's 1 rejected migration)

Could we have this now?

This is done. The volume of migrations isn't huge, but there are enough of them to demonstrate a reasonable amount of overlap - so, no need to have to bother the moderators about this.

the migrate to math.se option

In order to open up a migration path, we'd first like to see evidence that a significant number of closed questions have been manually migrated by moderators or should be migrated to the destination site.

Perhaps you / the community can create an answer here that points to a lot of examples.
