Please forgive me if this is inappropriate for MathOverflow. I've been working/playing with generating functions for a little while and may have stumbled upon a new technique or methodology.
The problem is that it's incomplete, and I don't have a lot to show to someone to prove its effectiveness. I believe I need some help fine tuning this method to get it to work. I'm unsure if I can solve it, at least easily, on my own. I've tried contacting a few big name professors in the field, but most seemed to busy. I was wondering if there's someone who could spare some time to look into what I'm working on.
Are there any suggestions of people that I could try contacting? If it's not advisable to go forward with contacting people at this time, what else should/could I try to help get answers? I realize I haven't described my method here; it's a pretty complicated one, but one that can probably be explained in a few pages.
