When I recently visiting Princeton, the esteemed Jennifer Rexford mentioned a great idea for a graduate class. The theme would be "Theory papers every networking person ought to read." Naturally, I have some biased thoughts on the matter. But I would like to collect suggestions from others here. This would be a class that I'd love to teach!
For my own purposes, I'm also interested in the other direction -- what are the networking papers every theory person ought to read?
