Brief description of the papers and articles in the Reading List

I expect you to read these articles and try to understand them. Read them by yourself first and then ask for help from your friends or from me (in class). Hint: I do not know all and may not be able to answer all of your questions.  However, I can use these in the Midterm examination.
