Best sources on data stream algorithms

I recently got interested in data stream algorithms to the point that I'd like to study the topic and then teach it to someone.

I'd be thus grateful for pointers to really good sources on the topic, t.i. papers presenting major ideas in a particularly articulate way, papers with clever proofs of clever theorems, just good overviews of the state of the art, whatever.

My two cents:


Piotr Indyk has some lecture notes on streaming and related topics at

A MADALGO summer school a few years ago also has some good notes. I would say all the papers listed in the bibliography there are good reads for anyone interested in the area.
