Question - I am thinking to present one or two papers on Sieve Theory in my masters thesis. I will also present 3 other papers on Riemann Zeta Function which I have studied earlier . But I have no previous knowledge of Sieve Theory. Although I know about some books in sieve theory like Montgomery ( Topics in multiplicative number theory) , Friedlander and Iwaniac ( Sieve theory: A musical) but my Institute only accepts research papers in masters thesis.
So, can any researcher here suggest 2 research papers which led to the beginning of the subject of sieve theory. I will study them and present them along with the papers I have already studied.
I have searched in past 4-5 days for some papers in different domains of ANT over web pages of different professors and some other websites but it doesn't lead me much as I am just a beginner in this field.
