Hi all,
I'm new to posting, but have been watching threads for about a year.

I am planning on writing a diploma thesis at school on Bitcoin topic (from SW engineering perspective), but it's really difficult to find any "official" materials. By official I mean academic papers, other people theses, etc...

So my idea is to create a thread where we could consolidate all such science related works and I hope many of you will find this helpful not only in case you want to write something by your own, but also as a reader. If you wish to extend the list, please always note the source, author and year (if known).

Here I start with what I have found (the order is random except for Satoshi's paper, which is considered as basic starting point)

Definitely useful sources, but for some reason, Google did not return this site in the beginning.

On the other hand, I believe there are a lot more works in the world. Just at my school I know 1 guy who wrote a bachelor's thesis (in a small country:) ) and more are planning to do so. So, I assume, available resources dynamically increase day by day.

I would add my two papers. Although they are not strictly about Bitcoin as it is today, they bring many comparisons between Bitcoin and a proposed system and suggest many Bitcoin improvements.

Thank you for the links you posted, there were many papers I didn't know they existed!

Best regards, Sergio.

You mean "theses", which is the plural of "thesis" :-)

Awesome collection, I've already started plowing through these.

I took the liberty of adding your fine collection to the Research article on the wiki, and reorganized the list of articles there into a nice sortable table. IMHO it's a more natural place for these kinds of things, and I hope you will join me in maintaining the article.
