My question is pretty simple: what papers do you feel are foundational to quantitative finance? I'm compiling a personal reading list already, drawn from Wilmott forums, papers referenced in Derivatives, and other sources.
However, the body of research is immense, especially in recent years, so I'm interested in what the professionals are reading/building their work off of. Any references the community could offer would be much appreciated.
EDIT: As per the comments I'll define recent years as post 2000 with an emphasis on research after the crash of 2008. In particular, I'm seeking papers on quantitative management of portfolios and asset pricing.
