Published Research Papers In Mathematics

We recognize how important archival material is for supporting advancements in mathematics research. That is why we have opened access to all available archived articles, back to Volume 1, Issue 1 (or the first issue available) of each of the primary mathematics journals from 4 years after publication to the 1st issue, which means back to early 1960s for several titles. All papers in the archive are subject to Elsevier’s user license.

200,000 articles are now freely available to the mathematics community via ScienceDirect, for the below titles. This number continues to grow on a monthly basis.

I am interested in collecting a list of research papers with a mainly mathematical focus that appeared in high-reputation general science journals without a dedicated mathematics section. This would include things like Nature or Science, but exlcude, for example, PNAS.

By a "papers with a mainly mathematical focus" I mean publications whose purpose is the announcement/description/proof of a new mathematical method or result, rather than the mere use of (sophisticated) mathematical techniques to solve a scientific problem from another discipline.

I would imagine that often such papers are complemented by a publication in a more traditional mathematical venue that expands on technical details maybe omitted in the general science journal, and it would be nice to collect those as well to see how the two publications differ from each other.

I vaguely remember coming across one or two of such papers in the past, but I cannot find them anymore and cannot, therefore, give an example of what I am looking for.

I would be grateful if someone could convert this question to Community Wiki mode, I seem to be unable to find the right check-box.
