Great papers to read

My research group meets every two weeks. It is always fun to talk about general research issues and new tools and tips we have discovered. We also use some of the time to discuss a paper that I choose for them. Today we discussed Breiman’s classic (2001) two cultures paper — something every statistician should read, including the discussion.

I select papers that I want every member of research team to be familiar with. Usually they are classics in forecasting, or they are recent survey papers.

In the last couple of months we have also read the following papers:

    Nice. How about sharing which papers you discuss on the blog? (Or even better, assign a student to guest-post a summary of the paper and your discussion…)
