    Francisco Antonio Doria (2009). Theoretical Physics: A Primer for Philosophers of Science. Principia 13 (2):195-232.
    We give a overview of the main areas in theoretical physics, with emphasis on their relation to Lagrangian formalism in classical mechanics. This review covers classical mechanics; the road from classical mechanics to Schrodinger's quantum mechanics; electromagnetism, special and general relativity, and (very briefly) gauge field theory and the Higgs mechanism. We shun mathematical rigor in favor of a straightforward presentation.

    Francisco Antonio Doria (2007). Informal Versus Formal Mathematics. Synthese 154 (3):401 - 415.
    We discuss Kunen’s algorithmic implementation of a proof for the Paris–Harrington theorem, and the author’s and da Costa’s proposed “exotic” formulation for the P = NP hypothesis. Out of those two examples we ponder the relation between mathematics within an axiomatic framework, and intuitive or informal mathematics.

    Francisco Antonio Doria (1992). Mathematics is Dramatically Incomplete. Theoria 7 (1/2/3):411-422.
    We state and comment our recent results on the incompleteness of elementary real analysis and their relevance for the axiomatized sciences.
