Ross Howard Street (29 September 1945, Sydney –) is an Australian mathematician specialising in category theory.[1][2][3][4] He did his undergraduate and postgraduate study at the University of Sydney, where his advisors were Max Kelly and Thomas Room.[5] He is an emeritus professor of mathematics at Macquarie University, a fellow of the Australian Mathematical Society (1995), and was elected Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science in 1989.[6] He was awarded the Edgeworth David Medal of the Royal Society of New South Wales in 1977, and the Australian Mathematical Society's George Szekeres Medal in 2012.[2]


An incomplete list. Some closely related papers by other authors are also included. In the following "SLNM" stands for Springer Lecture Notes in Mathematics, while the titles of the four journals most frequently publishing research on categories are abbreviated as follows: JPAA = Journal of Pure and Applied Algebra, TAC = Theory and Applications of Categories, ACS = Applied Categorical Structures, CTGDC = Cahiers de Topologie et Géométrie Différentielle Catégoriques (Volume XXV (1984) and later), CTGD = Cahiers de Topologie et Géométrie Différentielle (Volume XXIV (1983) and earlier). For a more complete list, see the list at Street's website, from which this list was derived. Some closely related or specialized items are listed not by date of publication, but by their topic.
