Every year, I read approximately 700 papers.

(Not to mention articles on the internet and blogs...).

This is a sample of those that I think particularly interesting. It's more of a "memoranda" (things to remember) for myself, but if you find it useful, please use it!

The papers are listed in the order that I read (or re-read) them. The gem icon (💎) denotes exactly that!
