Request questions from sites on the StackExchange networks that are on-topic here too, to be imported here. Moderators may then import the question.

This thread can not only be used to request importing single questions, but PhysicsOverflow members who like some or all of their (for PhysicsOverflow on topic) SE posts imported can say so in a corresponding answer here too. Any other specific list of questions is fine too.

I will mention some questions we listed here too, if I am at a second look not 100% certain about importing them and interpret the upvotes as agreement with getting them.

I mean all of those questions should have been ok on Physics SE, but I am sometimes not sure if other people think they are a good fit for PhysicsOverflow too.

I have recategorised this under "Public Official Threads" so users can request their posts to be imported as per your addendum.

To keep this page from growing to infinity,should we delete the questions regarding those that actually got imported?

@RonMaimon I agree, but hide, not delete (delete erases from the database itself).

@Dilaton On SE, answers can be ordered by time if one needs to, but not here.

I meant it moved to a random position in the questions list, it wasn't bumped anymore.

@RonMaimon hiding is ok But concerning references and study material (concerning advanced topics) they newer cluttered any site on SE (not the ones I was interested in) so they will not here either. They were considered legitimate in TP.SE and they are not forbidden on MathOverflow. So please dont introduce this for (advanced) students and people who want to learn about a new topic obstructive SE point of view (in SE they always said you can ask in chat which means forget about it because there are no physics people in chat)

ok, but the point is that it shouldn't come with rep, and it's extremely easy to do, and it only needs to be done once in each topic, so perhaps when reviews are up, it can be done in reviews. You can ask the same question on each topic, I think it's best to make a literature review for each tag on reviews, so that each topic has a set of references people can add to. It's just not effort to find literature.

We cannot import an answer without the question. Your answer is in fact not a complete answer to the question on SE, since you don't talk about the necessary reinterpretation of the notion of superposition (which now also becomes an integral).

As PhysicsOverflow is for graduate-level discussion, this does not fit our scope.

The only potentially grad-level post is

http://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/112598/how-does-one-produce-entanglement/

depending what answer it will get here, the existing answers are all on standard undergrad-textbook level. I'd like to know if there are experimental methods beyond the textbook method, and what are the merits.

I agree with @JiaYiyang. The how-to-produce-entanglement  question could maybe be seen as on-topic, if taken as an experimental question (?).

There are some questions posted by this user on Physics.SE. If they are ok for Physicsoverflow then please import them. I am afraid that some of his questions might get deleted soon there, so I've saved them at archive.org and can be seen in the following links even if they get deleted on Phys.Se,

• Gravitational shifts of frequency in general relativity and classical physics

• Synchrotron radiation and special relativity

• Unknown magnetic moment of orthohydrogen
• A proof for Newtonian origin of residual perihelion advances in solar system
• Emission and absorption of photons by electrons

I've no problem if these question are off-topic on PhysicsOverflow, perhaps being not upto the level of this site.

P.S: Any edits are welcome.

Unfortunately, none of the questions look graduate-level to me, but if the import suggestion gets enough consensus, I'll import it.

I agree with this assessment but was wondering, if we could import them to chat to save them? Or maybe we could have a chat subcategory chat/PhysicsUnderflow to back up not PO on-topic but worth of salvaging SE questions that could for example be used for a future PhysicsUnderflow?

@Dilaton I think Chat shouldn't be for completely off-topic stuff, only for non-question discussions, tangential discussions moved from other posts, and other open-ended discussions if the author wants them to be there.

I've no problem if the question are off topic here. This question is about general relativity, may be it is on topic here.
