A Personal Roadmap

This page provides a personal mathematical roadmap: a very incomplete and subjective collection of papers in areas that I have made some effort to understand over the past few years, with a link to an online version of the paper and its mathscinet review whenever these are available. The purpose is to give the reader a better idea of where my mathematical 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 rather the ones I have most benefited from reading. This includes numerous survey articles. In the case of joint papers, no judgement is intended by linking only to one author's website.
