- An analogue-inspired interpretation of the Kerr spacetime [267].

- Analogue-based hints on how to implement “doubly special relativity” (DSR) [361, 362, 363, 599], and a cautionary analysis of why this might be difficult [561].
- Possible black-hole phase transitions placed in an analogue context [591].

- Magnon contributions to BEC physics [97, 665].
- Analogue models based on plasmon physics [581, 582].
- Abstract quantum field theoretic considerations of the Unruh effect [695].
- The interpretation of black-hole entropy in terms of universal “near horizon” behaviour of quantum fields living on spacetime [114, 115].
- Numerous suggestions regarding possible trans-Planckian physics [12, 59, 121, 128, 129, 284, 440, 528, 600].
- Numerous suggestions regarding a minimum length in quantum gravity [71, 78, 93, 144, 230, 293, 294, 295, 361, 362, 363, 405, 407, 406, 579].
- Standard quantum field theory physics reformulated in the light of analogue models [9, 10, 203, 215, 393, 398, 399, 400, 422, 471, 472, 486, 485, 487, 493, 515, 695].
- Standard general relativity supplemented with analogue viewpoints and insights [354, 376, 422, 456, 325, 475].
- The discussion of, and argument for, a possible reassessment of fundamental features of quantum physics and general relativity [11, 259, 342, 377, 400, 488, 535, 544].
- Non-standard viewpoints on quantum physics and general relativity [157, 292, 479, 529, 527, 545, 546, 547, 548].

- Analogue-inspired models of black-hole accretion [516, 517, 518].
- Cosmological horizons from an analogue spacetime perspective [244].
- Analogue-inspired insights into renormalization group flow [107].
- An analysis of “wave catastrophes” inspired by analogue models [348].
- Improved numerical techniques for handling wave equations [688], and analytic techniques for handling wave tails [80], partially based on analogue ideas.

From the above the reader can easily appreciate the broad interest in, and wide applicability of, analogue spacetime models.

There is not much more that we can usefully say here. We have doubtless missed some articles of historical importance, but with a good library or a fast Internet connection the reader will be in as good a position as we are to find any additional historical articles.
