I found a Mathematica8,9 operations error, a simple but significant error in an iteration method.

There may be error propagation involved. FORTRAN90 does not exhibit this phenomenon.

Can I write a paper about it?

Or should I just send an email to wolfram corp?

What do you think?

you could raise it in the mathematica site. and send to wolfram. migrate? –  daniel Jan 25 '13 at 14:39
My question is "can be the paper?" How do you think? –  KKH Jan 25 '13 at 14:44
The answer is "no". –  Alex B. Jan 25 '13 at 14:55
It depends on the nature of the error. If it is a programming bug, then no, it's not worthy of a paper. If it is a flaw in a published algorithm, which raises some significant mathematical content in analyzing the nature of the flaw, then it could be worthy of a paper. –  Grumpy Parsnip Jan 25 '13 at 15:12
Have you checked that this isn't a known error? –  Rick Decker Jan 25 '13 at 15:12
