Daniel Gorenstein (1 Jan 1923-26 Aug 1992) was an American mathematician.
- 1950: Received Ph.D. from Harvard University
- 1951: Gorenstein accepted a teaching position at Clark University
- 1975: Gorenstein joined Rutgers University
Gorenstein was among the mathematicians who worked on the Classification of finite simple groups, starting from the year 1960.
- 1960-61: Began a long collaboration with Walter on group theory, and also interacted with Brauer, Suzuki, Higman, Graham and Ito.
- 1968: Wrote a book titled Finite groups describing the then state-of-the-art in the classification of finite simple group.
- 1982: Wrote a book titled Finite simple groups: an introduction to their classification
- 1983: Wrote (jointly with Lyons) a book titled The local structure of finite groups of characteristic 2 type
- 1994: Wrote (along with Lyons and Solomon) a book titled The classification of finite simple groups
Gorenstein worked under Saunders Maclane.
Gorenstein collaborated with many others working on the classification of finite simple groups, including:
