EGT Reading Group 21 – 30

Although we don’t post summarizes of papers we read in the reading group nearly often enough, one of the goals of this blog is to provide a second medium for the EGT Reading Group I started at McGill University in 2010. Today we had our 30th reading group, and to celebrate I decided to post the references for papers we’ve read since our last update.
