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!!
