My question may appear weird but just asking it out of my curiosity. I want to know that “Does there exist research papers which are written on understanding (rather than deriving new facts and theorems) of topics of Mathematics in some new and unique approach not used before?” If the answer to this question is ‘Yes’, then how much weight-age is given to such research paper in terms of its acceptance and publication in a reputed journal?
If the answer to my second question is ‘Yes’, then kindly provide a link to such papers and journal. Thanks!!
