my scientific universe
Here is a very incomplete and subjective collection of papers in my research areas that I have found very inspiring and which founded my understanding and my vision of these areas. The purpose is to give the reader a better idea of where my interests lie, and to provide a guide to reading material for those new to the subject.
Such a project comes with all the obvious disclaimers: The classification into subject areas is very rough, and the order of authors within them completely arbitrary. I have by no means attempted to select the most “important” papers of any one author, but the ones I have most benefited from reading. In the case of joint papers, no judgement is intended by linking only to one author’s website.
