I have an algorithm in textual form(in English) from a research paper that deals with meteorology/climatology . If I convert the textual algorithm into pseudo code can I ask it as a question here for confirmation or does it belong to Computational Science Stack Exchange ? The data structures that will support the algorithm are irrelevant as far the question is concerned.
We never ended up discussing it really but the last time we mentioned it people seemed ok with it. I would certainly think that it would be on-topic as long as the question stops at the algorithm, i. e. off-topic if the question is about dealing with errors in the code but on-topic if trying to figure out the validity of an algorithm.
