Functional explanation in mathematics

Matthew Inglis, Juan Pablo Mejía-Ramos
2019 Synthese  
We therefore argue that the explanatory criteria offered by earlier accounts can all be thought of as features that make it more likely that a mathematical proof will generate understanding.  ...  On the functional account, features such as characterising properties, unification, and salience correlate with explanatoriness, but they do not define explanatoriness.  ...  Acknowledgements We are grateful to Brendan Larvor, Fenner Tanswell, and three anonymous reviewers for helpful comments on earlier drafts of this paper.  ...
