"Patenting" math formulas or something like that
I figured out a few math formulas for doing certain functions (I don't want to be specific, so my formulas are not stolen!). I searched the net for formulas just like the ones I figured out, but couldn't find anything. Also, I don't know of any like them.
Does anyone know what I can do to coin a math formula or somehow claim credit for it?
Ok ok, I know this sounds so stupid, because there's hardly much more formulas to make!
But anyhow, what can I do?
