Recently we've been discussing here whether questions on numerical algorithms should be allowed when the context is a physics problem. The last time this was discussed on Meta seems to be here (a follow-up to this), which implies that such questions should be allowed. However, computational questions have historically beenoff topic according to the definition of our scope in the help center, and the last time I proposed changing that, the only response was to wait until the Computational Science site had taken off and reevaluate the decision then.
Well, now Computational Science is well established, and nevertheless it seems we are of the opinion that numerical algorithms in a physical context should be on topic here.
Is this assessment accurate? Does the community want questions on numerical algorithms in a physical context to be on topic for us? (this is just a last opportunity for anyone who disagrees to speak out)
How should we word the item that would need to be added to the Help Center's on-topic page under the "What topics can I ask about here?" heading to reflect this?
