The following page contains a list of books and papers that constituted the reading list for my PhD qualifying exams which I took in July 2010 for an interdepartmental program between the MIT Sloan School of Management and the MIT Media Lab's program in Media Arts, and Sciences.

You'll notice that a number of the papers on here are red links (i.e., they do not have summaries attached to them yet). Although I read everything on my list, I did not have time to write full summaries of everything. In general, I tended to write summaries of the material I was least confident or familiar with. As a result, work by my advisors and most directly related to my areas of research and interest tend to be what is currently underrepresented. Maybe you should read these and help me improve the list!
