Summary:
How do I search for math papers on web?
First of all, I want to know what research papers are called in Mathematicians' jargon.
Second, I want to know if there is a place on web where I can find all the work done in math by all the mathematicians. Thanks.

Research papers. Journal articles. Publications.

No. But arxiv.org has a lot of preprints which were later published. You can also find many historical documents: Newton, Gauß, Einstein, Noether, which have been scanned and published by some institutions.

To find a specific one you will need the original title. Wikipedia's list of references at the end of each article are a good starting point to search.

However, there is no catalog that lists all papers published ever, let alone find them at one place. There are still many papers which are protected by copyright so you will have to pay in order to get access.

arXiv has ~100% coverage for mathematics papers in several fields - everything that gets published is also uploaded there, often months before the publication. There are also many submissions that never become "full" publications. And everything is free to access.

Papers or publications.

If you are a student, your uni might have bought access to MathSciNet.

arXiv is indeed the standard for pre-prints.

For journal publications, MathSciNet (AMS) and zbMATH (EMS) are the standard resources. The latter has recently become open access. Neither contain a list of all journal publications of all times, but their coverage of past and present is very extensive.
