Interesting articles using PDEs

  1. “A simple proof that the world is three-dimensional”, by Tom Morley (1985)
    • Original article, from SIAM Review (Use JSTOR link), vol. 27, no. 1, pp. 69-71.
    • For errata, follow this same link, but select vol. 28, no. 2, p. 229 (1986).
    • The paper is really a follow-up to Huygen's principle, mentioned in Lesson 24 of Farlow's book.
