Interesting and Must Read Papers and Articles in Mathematics

Tell your friends

Mathematics is beautiful and there is no place of ugly mathematics in this world. Mathematics is originated from creativity and it develops with research papers. Research Papers aren't only very detailed and tough to understand for general student, but also interesting. Here, I have collected the list of some excellent articles and research papers (belong mainly to Math) which I have read and are easily available online. The main source of this list is ArXiv.org .
If you know any other paper/article which you find extremely interesting and that is not listed here, then please do comment mentioning the article name and URL. Papers/articles are cited as paper-title first, then http url and at last author-name.

[It is better adviced to open these links to a new tab/window for smooth reading. :) ]
