I am reading some papers from Arxiv which were advised by a professor. Also the papers are published by a professors. My question is as follows: How to prove the professor that I have read the paper (advised by him)? Actually, I don't want to say just "sir, I have read the paper advised by you". If I truly read the papers then I might get a chance to be research student under him.

Please advise me.

    Are you trying to ask something like: "how do I demonstrate that I read and understood a professor's paper to the professor in question?" or are you just trying to ask: "what is the best way to try to read a research paper that was recommended to me?" Apr 20 at 18:03
  • @NAMcMahon Yes, I am asking about something like: "how do I demonstrate that I read and understood a professor's paper to the professor in question". Actually, I want to convince the professor that I read some of his paper and understood those well. How will I convince him?

If you want to prove that you read a paper, you should read it carefully by analyzing the main results and identify the contribution. You should also understand why a hypothesis is made and whether if it is optimal or not. Sometimes you might find some errors or improve some results. In this way, you can prove that you truly read a research paper.

Understand the motivation for the paper, how it contributes to its particular research community, and note any clever twists or innovations it introduced.
